• Welcome to Ms. West's 7th grade English Language Arts class! Our class motto is "Be Revolutionary" because we want to bring about change in our own lives and in the world around us. While every day in Ms. West's class looks different, each day is guided by a four point focus: reading, writing, critical thinking, and vocabulary. Everyday we are engaging with some form of text, expressing our thoughts or knowledge through meaningful writing, thinking critically about a text and the way it relates to the world we know, and seeking to expand our vocabulary, which is crucial to the former three.
