Welcome to 7th Grade ELA!
I am so excited to join Brabham Middle School this year! As the state of Texas has issued new standards for English this year, our focus in ELA class will be on three main items:
1. Reading - Students will need to be able to select and read a variety of grade-level texts.
2. Writing - Students will need to be able to express their thoughts in a variety of ways and through different genres.
3. Discussion - Students will need to be able to contribute to meaningful discussion with their peers, including giving and receiving constructive criticism.
One of the best things you can do to help your student's success not only in ELA class, but in all their classes is to encourage daily reading at home. I have challenged my on-level students (periods 3, 4, and 6) to read a minimum of 10 minutes a day. For my pre-ap students (periods 1, 2, and 5) I have challenged them to read a minimum of 20 minutes a day.
Should you want to get a hold of me, you can use the following methods:
remind (periods 1, 2, and 5): @hansenpap
remind (periods 3, 4, and 6): @hansen7ela

I look forward to working with your kiddos this year and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you!
