Dugan, Margaret

Welcome to 7th Grade Language Arts!

During this year, students can expect to be challenged to improve their writing, reading, grammar, and vocabulary skills so they can be better prepared to meet the challenges of high school, higher education, and the professional world. In the process, I hope that my students grow in their appreciation of literature, reading, and their own talent as writers.
