Teacher's Message

Welcome to 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Reading and Language Arts at OLMC with Mrs. Cassidy!

“The journey of  lifetime starts with the turning of a page.” – Rachel Anders 

This Trimester students will do close readings of two novels.

6th grade will start with Holes by Louis Sacher

7th grade will start with Nothing but the Truth by Avi

The 8th grade class will begin the trimester reading three different short stories: “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry and “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant.

All students will begin their journey in writing by composing a narrative writing piece.  Sixth and seventh grade students will write a narrative vignette about the origin of their name. The eighth grade class will compose a narrative piece of their choosing.
