Language Arts Starts Research Project

Language arts is beginning our second research project, Natural Disasters!

This project incorporates several standards: research and questioning, reading and analyzing non-fiction text, text structures, and the writing process. Students are expected to complete a five-paragraph essay, including a works cited with credible sources.

Exceeding students will have the opportunity to create a Weebly (webpage) to showcase their research project on-line! They will be able to use video clips, images, and their own words to express their understanding of their chosen natural disaster.

Students will begin developing questions that support their research at the end of January and will begin working in the computer labs mid February. Class time will be used to work on the research, but many students will need to work on this project at home.

Please do not hesitate to contact any of the 7th grade language arts teachers if you have questions about this project.
