7th & 8th Grade Class


Welcome to Junior High! 7th and 8th graders go through many transitions. My academic goal is to prepare your students for High School. The student needs to learn to take responsibility for his/her academic achievement. While we don’t physically change classes here, I do go by the bell, much like your student will in High School. My job isn’t to feed the answers to your student, but to encourage them to dig it out for themselves.  In Bible, we study the Old Testament which dovetails nicely with our study of Ancient civilizations and world cultures.  In Grammar, we review the parts of speech and grammar rules and apply these in our writing assignments. In Literature we study The Chronicles of Narnia and try to see how many allusions Lewis makes to the Bible. In Science, we are presented with many great scientists and their discoveries and how their faith helped them in their Science endeavors. All truth is God’s truth so I try to teach the students that all learning can lead to a greater understanding of their Creator and Father. My spiritual goal is for the students to realize that their God-given assignment now is to reflect God’s glory in the way they do school, family, and the life God has given them.
