Articulation Summer Homework For 7th

Middle School Communication Skills:

So what communication skills are needed for children in middle school?  Well, for that we go the Common Core State Standards.  These standards were set forth by the US government as a way to measure progress of American schools.  This curriculum outlines exactly what skills children should master in each grade.

There are a ton of different communication skills that are outlined in the text.  For a full account of what the curriculum includes, click the link below:
