Mr. Christopher Todd
Hello! My name is Christopher Todd and I will be your child's academic facilitator for the 2019-2020 school year. It is my goal to transform your child from a student to a lifelong learner. My class is designed to teach skills and strategies nessary to achieve academic success now and in the future. At all stages of their lives and in every area of learning, work, and relationships students are and will be challenged to analyze, investigate, and evaluate. Therefore, it is my intention to teach, support, and enrich each student and their learning.
In grade seven, students will read independently for extended periods of time. They will analyze the connections between the texts they read and the real world. They will demonstate how to paraphrase, evaluate and summarize the information they read. They will distinguish between fact and opinion. Seventh grade students will further analyze various types of conflicts and continue identifying imagery and symbolism. In addition, students will evaluate point of of view, elements of poetry, and various types of figurative language.
Grade seven students will continue asking questions to investigate a topic. They will also enhance their ability to access information from a variety of sources as well as develop their skill in conducting independent research and summarizing the information they gather.
I graduated with a bachelors degreee from UNCW in 1995. I also have advanced eduaction courses from Ole Miss and Mississippi State University. I have been teaching for seventeen years with the last eight being at Union Middle School.
