7th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

Our seventh grade students begin a rigorous study of advanced words in addition to refining their knowledge of Latin and Greek stems. Students continue to hone their research, grammar, and essay-writing skills through analysis of poetry, comparison of complex subjects, evaluation of ideas, and the creation of academic theses. We use Michael Clay Thompson's language arts series to challenge our high-achieving students.

Reading Sources

By introducing our students to complex passages from some of the world's greatest writers, we teach students both how to understand intricately-expressed ideas as well as to convey their own insights. Below is a sample of the high-quality classic literature and primary sources from which course material is drawn:
  • As You Like It by William Shakespeare
  • Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
  • Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
  • Kim by Rudyard Kipling
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
  • Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
  • The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
