Seventh Grade Core

Find our Utah State Core for Seventh Grade Language Arts at 

Here is my post with core standards -- 

State Core for Parents and Students


Summative:  May _______________


     I am enthusiastic about our new core  because it focuses more than previous cores have on real world skills and understandings.   As we apply it, we are being encouraged and supported in applying best-teaching practices, and in selecting materials and resources appropriate to our students.  By the way, the reading materials we use as we teach the standards are selected as a department or as individual teachers, not dictated by any outside entity.

     Please note that the State Core test will be given in Ms. Dorsey's seventh grade English classes on  ____  and ___ of 2020.    Encourage your student to be here, to be well rested, to have eaten a healthy breakfast (and lunch), and to bring clear bottle of water.

     The test will be taken online for our language arts classes.   Thanks.
