|7th grade scholars hard at work|
In all classes students are learning that a strong argument or wise decision needs supporting evidence and details.
Students in Aishling Falzone's ELA class are working on literary claims and using quotations from a text to support these claims. In this case students are reading the short story "A Crush" by Cynthia Rylant. Flowers play an important role in the story, so students are creating claims and finding quotations that address the question of how flowers affect characters in the story.
