    ELA - English/Language Arts, Grade 7




    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

    My name is Joanne Rohrman, and I am teaching 7th grade English and Creative Writing.

    This year our 7th graders will continue with the  "Into Literature" English/Language Arts (ELA) program. This challenging program offers a mix of interactive online and traditional activities, with a wide variety of diverse reading selections chosen to appeal to young readers. Additional ELA activities and resources include journal writing, independent reading on a variety of platforms,vocabulary expansion via Membean, targeted readings and assessments on I-Ready and CommonL Google Classroom is your student's home base for work assignments and online resources.

    Another important piece of this year's instructional plan is our new WIN program. During this daily period, students will be able to access learning resources, get extra help, explore topics of interest to them, and learn about 21st century life skills such as financial literacy.

    Reading is the key to all of our students' learning at LBMS. As President Barack Obama said, "Reading is the gateway skill that makes all learning possible, from complex word problems and the meaning of our history to scientific discovery and technological proficiency." This quote reflects why I teach ELA. I will do everything I can to make this a challenging, entertaining, and rewarding year for our students! Looking forward to a great year.
