Seventh Grade Homeschool Curriculum
Bridgeway Academy’s 7th grade homeschool curriculum packages are customized for your child to ensure academic success in middle school. Your advisor will work with you to find the best curriculum to meet the needs and goals of your child.
English / Language Arts
In 7th grade, students review prior knowledge of paragraph and essay structure and expand their writing into 5-7 paragraph essays that include descriptive, narrative, persuasive, comparison and contrast, and expository writing. They develop and expand their reading skills through the study of literature, which includes a variety of genres.
Grammar is emphasized and integrated throughout the curriculum and then in context through reading and writing. Dictionary and thesaurus work in book and computer forms, contextual study and word analysis skills are all included in this process. Vocabulary development and spelling are reinforced throughout the school year. An emphasis is placed on an increase in word study, reading vocabulary and the use of effective language, written and orally.
