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
"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
