7th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

Our seventh grade students begin a rigorous study of advanced words in addition to refining their knowledge of Latin and Greek stems. Students continue to hone their research, grammar, and essay-writing skills through analysis of poetry, comparison of complex subjects, evaluation of ideas, and the creation of academic theses. We use Michael Clay Thompson's language arts series to challenge our high-achieving students.

Reading Sources

By introducing our students to complex passages from some of the world's greatest writers, we teach students both how to understand intricately-expressed ideas as well as to convey their own insights. Below is a sample of the high-quality classic literature and primary sources from which course material is drawn:
  • As You Like It by William Shakespeare
  • Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
  • Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
  • Kim by Rudyard Kipling
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
  • Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
  • The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
"One of the best decisions I ever made was to send my son to AoPS Academy for improving his math skills. The results are simply amazing! In addition to dramatically improving his math skills, my son also enjoys the social environment that the academy offers. Personally, I am very impressed with the quality of the entire staff (teaching and non-teaching alike). I would not hesitate to recommend AoPS Academy to any parent who is serious about developing their child's academic potential in a safe and stimulating environment."
