Mastering New York's Grade 7 English Language Arts Standards applies the latest educational research to help seventh graders improve their reading, listening and editing skills.

Introduction. Like the other books in this series, this text opens by introducing students to the metacognitive reading strategies described in Mosaic of Thought. Subsequent chapters review the main characteristics of stories, poems, and expository texts.

Session 1: Reading. The book helps students to master key reading comprehension skills with readings, explanations, and practice questions. Award-winning children's texts are presented from a variety of disciplines. Special emphasis is placed on those higher-level thinking skills tested on New York State's Grade 7 test, such as evaluating information and analyzing an author's use of figurative language.

Session 2: Listening and Writing Skills. Students practice their listening and note-taking skills, and learn how to analyze question words - what, how and why - in order to answer short-response questions. Next they review the most important rules of capitalization, punctuation, grammar, and usage. Seventh graders learn how to edit a paragraph, and practice with paragraphs like those on the actual test. Additional practice is provided in a separate exercise book, Mastering New York's Grade 7 Writing Standards: Editing a Paragraph.

A Final Practice Test. The book concludes with a complete practice test that reflects the number of questions and level of difficulty of the actual Grade 7 English Language Arts Test.
