  • Welcome Back!

    I hope that everyone had a restful and memorable Winter Break. It was great to see all of the students back this week.  This quarter we will be focusing more on informative text (non-fiction), so we will be reading a lot of new articles to analyze how author's prove a point and distinguish their point of view from others.  

    In writing, the seventh grade will be working on narrative writing (telling a story).  I am looking forward to reading their creative writing this quarter!

Book List

  • One

    by Kathryn Otoshi Year Published: 2008

    Blue is a quiet color. Red’s a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don’t like what they see, but what can they do? When no one speaks up, things get out of hand — until One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count.

  • Nothing But The Truth

    by Avi Year Published: 1991 Documentary Novel

    Patriotism or practical joke?

    Ninth-grade student Philip Malloy was suspended from school for singing along to The Star-Spangled Banner in his homeroom, causing what his teacher, Margaret Narwin, called "a disturbance." But was he standing up for his patriotic ideals, only to be squelched by the school system? Was Ms. Narwin simply trying to be a good teacher? Or could it all be just a misunderstanding gone bad—very bad? What is the truth here? Can it ever be known?

    Heroism, hoax, or mistake, what happened at Harrison High changes everything for everyone in ways no one—least of all Philip—could have ever predicted.
