Mrs.Carole Scannell Junior High Reading/Language - 7th

My name is Mrs. Carole Scannell and I am the 7th grade ELA teacher.  I have been a parishioner for more than twenty years, and been involved in a few church activities.  I have taught at a few different schools in the area, but look forward to my new adventure here at St. John Fisher.  My five children are all graduates of St. John Fisher which brings me great pride.

Week of May 17th

Posted on May 15, 2021

Welcome back to a full week of school!  We are in Unit Four of our Literature Book, and this whole unit is dealing with space.  Last week we talked about Mars, and the possibility of trying to colonize it.  This week we dig into specifics of the challenges that lie ahead for space exploration.  We are going to talk about author's purpose.  Why are we reading all of these stories??  This week we will work on persuasion.  We will make a claim(our viewpoint on this issue), and we will use different tones and voices to make our argument.  We will also look into the use of repetition in our argument.  We will also work on our vocabulary words, our bellringers, and finally on the proper ways to use a comma!  As you can see, we have a full week ahead of us.  Please check in with your children to make sure they are all caught up with their assignments.  I have had to put in quite a few F's when work is not handed in...
