Welcome to 7th Grade Reading! My name is Mr. Gallagher and I will be teaching reading skills to Seventh Grade to help students become better and more effective readers. Reading involves many different skills such as fluency, processing, comprehension, inference, and decoding. We will be reading different genres of literature with varying themes this year, however in this class, we will focus on becoming better readers. Students will be instructed in using various strategies for reading and comprehending written material effectively. Students will always be encourage to think as they read, to allow for deeper comprehension of the written material. I am looking forward to a great year ahead!
