Unit Info

We are now in our 4th and final unit of the 7th grade curriculum. For this unit, we will be studying how culture shapes individuality through examining slavery and works like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. We will be reading an abridged version of Huck using a graphic novel, which covers all of the big concepts and ideas of the original, while omitting the controversial language.

Students will also be working through some texts on their own at their own pace. We will end this unit with a one-paragraph essay.

Huck Finn Movie

In Language Arts we will be watching The Adventures of Huck Finn starting May 14. This movie is rated PG.If you have NOT already given permission for your student to view the film, click here. If you HAVE given permission, your response has been recorded.
