English 7 immerses students in the study of literature as a mirror for self-discovery and a window into diverse cultures. Through various narrative genres like fiction, historical fiction, and mythology, students analyze literary elements, authorial craft, and cultural contexts. Critical reading and writing skills are sharpened through literary analysis essays, comparative studies, and creative projects. Students learn to construct focused thesis statements, integrate evidence, and provide insightful commentary. Poetry analysis develops skills in interpreting imagery, figurative language, and verse structures. Emphasis is placed on using literature to build empathy, self-awareness, and global perspectives.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
