                               Class Instruction

         The goal of my Reading classroom instruction is to enhance the students Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening Skills.  These skills will be reinforced by  Reading and responding to stories in The Reading Anthology(Prentice Hall) , working on The Pennsylvania Grade 7 Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content and Reading Novels.  The students will be exposed to various Literature Genres, including Fiction, Non-Fiction, Folklore (Myths, Legends, Fables, Tall Tales, Folktales) Poetry, Drama.  All of the stories will be read orally in class, however, the students are always encouraged to take the anthology home to re-read the stories.
