Mr. James Lord
7th Grade English Language Arts Teacher
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! My name is James Lord, and this is my first year in education teaching English Language Arts. I am proud to say that I am a product of the Glassboro Public School District. I attended J. Harvey Rodgers, Dorothy L. Bullock, Thomas E. Bowe, the Intermediate School, and Glassboro High School before graduating from GHS back in 2015. Glassboro is, and always will be, home. I am extremly fortunate to be able to give back to the community that raised me, and the community that I love.
This year, we will be completing assignments through Schoology frequently; a tool I am told you all are familiar with from last year. There is a new curriculum that will be implemented this year for ELA called Wit & Wisdom. Students will be completing numerous activities in a variety of workbooks that will be kept in the classroom. Students are strongly encouraged to become actively engaged in their education through this curriculum by reading and writing about unique texts that will broaden their horizens in the areas of liberal arts and sciences.
We will be completing a total of four Modules that will focus on reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language (grammar & vocabulary). Additionally, the following Module topics that will be covered in 7th grade are as follows:
Module 1: Identity in the Middle Ages
Module 2: Americans All
Module 3: Language & Power
Module 4: Fever
