  • 7th Advanced Language Arts Reading Expectations

    Quarterly Word Goals

    • Students are expected to read 30 minutes a night.
    • Students have time in Language Arts to read during the week.
    • Each student will have an independent goal of words read to earn each quarter.
    • The first quarter’s word goal for all students is 250,000 words.
    • The second, third, and fourth quarters’ goals will be sent home, in writing, for students to obtain a parent signature.
    • A Word Count Log will maintain the word count for each student.
      • Students need to write the titles of all books being read as well as the word count.
      • Word counts can be found in online searches (arbookfind.com) and/or by doing a word estimate.
        • Word estimate: count the number of lines on one page (L); count the number of words in one line (W); get the number of pages (P); then multiply L x W x P for the estimated word count.
    • STUDENTS MUST HAVE A READING BOOK WITH THEM EVERY SCHOOL DAY.
