Ms. Silver- 7th Grade
Welcome to Seventh Grade ELA!

Ms. Stephanie Silver



"Brave doesn’t always involve grand gestures. Sometimes brave looks more like staying when you want to leave, telling the truth when all you want to do is change the subject." -Shauna Niequist.

Like a grand and miraculous spaceship, our planet has sailed through the universe of time; and for a brief moment we have been among its passengers. But where are we going? And what kind of future will we discover there? Surprisingly, the answers lie in our past. Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been inventing the future one step at a time. I’ll show you how our ancestors created the world we know today, and then it will be your turn to create the world of tomorrow. For the first time in history, all of us can have a say about the kind of world we want to live in. The choices we have made for the past 30,000 years have been inventing the future one day at a time.

You are a global citizen. You are more than flesh and bone.

You have the ability to change the world.

Because you’ve got soul.

In this unit, we will examine why writers use this universal motif to describe their experiences after 1945, a period marked by the end of several global atrocities (the Holocaust, the Atom Bomb, colonialism) and the beginning of new revolutions for individuals, communities, and nations. Our first book is Persepolis!
