English Language Arts

7th and 8th Grade Language Arts

  • Pearson texts – New this year
  • District-wide pacing guide created by teachers from all Hayward middle schools
  • Pacing guide is organized around writing genres

Literature (7th grade only)

  • Most seventh graders take two hours of Language Arts.  For seventh graders who don’t need an intervention class, a literature class is offered.
  • This class uses both the district-adopted Pearson text, district approved novels, and other supplemental material at the discretion of the teacher.
  • Eighth graders not in need of intervention are enrolled in an enrichment class, which may or may not work on building Language Arts skills.
