English Language Arts
Nothing is more crucial than learning how to be an effective communicator.
As a student growing up in today's increasingly digital era, it is even more important to not only have the skills to explain ideas clearly and thoughtfully but to do so in a way that is engaging and creative. The Internet and digital media have opened a lot of doors for collaboration and resource pooling, leaving entryways available for driven individuals. With the right skill set and passion, students can truly go anywhere and do anything.
This year at Juan Crespi, students will work to develop their own voice and find the motivation needed to succeed in whatever venture they desire. English Language Arts is so much more than simply grammar or breaking down story plot lines: it is the pathway to opportunity.
Below are links to state and national resources around the standards that are emphasized in the seventh grade.

GATE Core Curriculum
GATE students have a combined English Language Arts and World History curriculum at Juan Crespi Middle School.
The Core curricula will utilize historical context to analyze and contrast both primary sources from the periods studied as well as modern literature that contrasts or reinforces major thought from that era or country.
