Maximum Potential

7th & 8th Grade Social Studies & Language Arts
 
We The People - Claire Bloom

Do you “Feel the Bern”?  Do you want to “Make America Great Again”?  Do you “Like Ike”?  Do you want “A Chicken in Every Pot”?   Learn about how our government works as we prepare to choose the next man - or woman! - in charge.  But there’s more to running this country:  what about your rights and responsibilities?  How do laws get made?  How do the voting rights issues happening now connect to suffrage and emancipation?  We will look beyond the campaigns to better understand the country we live in.  Class will have an academic focus balanced with hands-on activities and authentic learning experiences.  Students will collaborate, communicate, and think critically.
 

Literature - Claire Bloom

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.  Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” -Groucho Marx.  Books take us into the past, the future, and the lives we live now.  They connect us to each other and to ourselves with carefully crafted language, realistic characters, and strong storylines.  Join us as we read works that complement the Upper School Language Arts and Social Studies curricula.  Students will read at home; we will begin class with a short reflective journal entry, then sit together in a circle to discuss what we have read.  We will think deeply, listen closely to each other, and make connections to the world around us.  As we do so, we will analyze how the authors work their magic.


7th Grade Language Arts - Kim Keoppen

On passion alone we can only take our writing so far. In this class, you will learn some vital tools to help organize your writing and refine your finished works. We will study the anatomy of an essay, memoir and poetry, as well as practice creating mood, tone, character development, plot, and theme. We will also explore literature to better understand the elements of good writing and delve into the craft of poetry
