English 7 introduces students from a wide representation of elementary schools to Marlborough's expectations. Students write frequently, learning to express themselves, both formally and informally, in expository and creative assignments. Personal experience and literature are springboards for writing assignments, oral presentations, and seminar-like discussions. Readings often include The Book Thief, To Kill a Mockingbird, Lord of the Flies, A Midsummer Night's Dream and an extended unit on poetry.
