7th Grade English/Language Arts (ELA)
Mrs. Pinter's Course Outline 2016-2017
Welcome to your 7th grade English/Language Arts (ELA) class. This class will challenge and inspire you in the pursuit of personal excellence in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. My expectations of you are as follows: Come to class with a positive attitude, and open mind, respect for yourself and the talents and insights of others, a sense of humor, and a spirit of adventure. A pencil, your current novel, agenda book, homework, and all class materials should also come with you.
I look forward to a great year together!
