Grade 7 English Lessons
Grade 7 marks the transition into middle school in some educational systems, and high school in some others. In any case, it is a departure from elementary school in many ways. As far as English is concerned the major change is that the explicit teaching of grammar is almost non-existent. Whatever grammar may be taught, will be done inductively, or as revision exercises. The same may be said of vocabulary, though in this case, some idiomatic expressions and phrasal verbs may continue to be taught. Reading passages will completely give way to books, fiction or non-fiction.
Reading comprehension at this stage will be considerably more complex and will test advanced inferential skills and vocabulary. There may also be summary writing introduced at this level.
Writing activities will encompass letter writing, explaining graphs, charts or diagrams, and article writing. This is in addition to the traditional essay writing, which itself will have more varieties such as narrative writing, argumentative writing, expository writing, and descriptive writing.
Vocabulary at this stage will be taught incidentally and as part of the vocabulary question in reading comprehension. However, when learners are second language learners with average or low proficiency in English, there may be a need to teach vocabulary explicitly.
