7 th Grade Language Arts
The ELA standards are designed to prepare students with the most important knowledge and 21st century literacy skills necessary to succeed in post-secondary and workforce arenas. These standards emphasize critical and divergent thinking, problem solving, active listening, recognition of patterns and anomalies, and evaluation and questioning of source material.
- In grades K–5, the standards signal the importance of laying a solid foundation for reading and writing.
- The middle grades, 6–8, solidify the foundation while increasing the complexity of text selection and tasks.
- Finally, grades 9–12 focus on sophistication and style.
