Mrs. Beverly Matos « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar
Welcome to my Language Arts website. It's hard to believe we are already part way through September and at the end of our first novel in both 7th and 8th grades!
In my 7th grade classes, we are starting a Unit One which has various selections of literature based around the question, "Does every conflict have a winner?" The first short story we are reading is "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi." While this story was boiled down many years ago into a cute children's movie, the text itself is much more complex. My 8th graders are also starting Unit One in their new literature books focused on the question, "Can all conflicts be resolved?" This unit will feature such classic short stories as "The Tale-Tell Heart" and "Flowers for Algernon. Both grades have themes that promise to promote critical thinking and healthy debate.
Please encourage your son or daughter to keep up with their AR reading, as it is easy to fall behind. Please feel free to e-mail or call me with any questions or concerns you may have.
