• Welcome To 7th Grade Academic Literacy


    What is Academic Literacy? Academic and technical literacy is necessary for success in today’s highly educated, global society. Effective reading has become a cognitive science that requires students to interact with texts in an effort to construct meaning. Throughout this course, students will be taught reading, writing, and critical thinking strategies to better develop the habits and skills required for becoming confident and independent readers. Students will be able to apply academic literacy skills to ANY level of curriculum in ANY content area. Students will also be able to identify their own areas of interest and learn how to access a variety of materials to read for pleasure. (More detales in the class syllabus)
