PSSA Announcement!

Attention English 7 Honors Students and Parents!

We have about 1 month to gear up for our English PSSAs. We need to be focused and determined throughout March. To give you a heads up on what is coming your way, I will be focused on 3 key concepts for the month of March. They are:
  1. Text-Dependent Analysis. This means we're going to use information from something we read to support our opinions and beliefs about the text!
  2. Craft and Structure. This means we're going to look at how authors write their texts. Do they use headings? Separate it into sections? Have it flow like one essay? Write it like a play? Use figurative language? And so many more!
  3. Author's Purpose and Main Ideas. This might be a review for some of you, but it is one of those things that is easy to forget! We're going to ask ourselves "Why" an author is writing and what they want readers to get out of it.
