LA 7-Reading Requirements
The Genre Project
The genre project is an assignment for all Shepherd Middle School students. The Language Arts teachers have a progressive format for students to follow. All students in the 6th grade will read 30 books, students in 7th grade will read 35 books, and students in 8th grade will read 40 books. This will be done over the course of the year during Choice Reading Time in LA classes. Students will read choice books covering 10 genres.I know it is a scary thought for some of you; 35 books seems overwhelming! I had students last year who acknowledged they had never even finished 2 books, but with voice and choice, they were successful.
Choice Reading Log
Every day at the beginning of the hour, we, as a class will have Silent Sustained Reading for 15 to 20 minutes. Everyone is expected to participate. We will have book talks,advertisements,sharing,and recommendation time once a week where you and I will share with the class information about the book you are reading or have read. You will be required to present orally 2 book talks per trimester. They should not exceed 2 minutes each.This is a class requirement.
Reading Comprehension Activities
You are required to complete two book comprenension activites per trimester. It can be a book/genre of your choice. Listed below you will find Alternatives to the Book Report and other links to help you with your choice. These reports can be completed and turned in anytime during the 9 weeks. It is due the Friday before the end of the trimester. Actual dates will be added soon.
