• 8th ELA

    Welcome to 8th grade English/Language Arts!

    I'm so excited see all of you and meet some of you for the first time! On this page you will find important resouces and documents to help you. If you are absent be sure to check the agenda page and the class Absent Bin. This year will be reading 2 novels, practicing and improving our writing skills by analyzing and writing narrative, informative, and arguementative essays,and creating and presenting using various forms of multimedia. You will be expected to read daily from your own books. There will be writing assignments based on your independent book. We will be checking out books every other weeks. Most assignments will be completed in class, with an occasional take home and finish assignment.   Grading breakdown: 70% classwork  and 30% Mastery of Standards assignments. 

    In closing, I want you know that I am very exited to be in the classroom with you. My plan is for us to learn from each other and support each other as you prepare for High School.  

    You can contact me at eking@washoeschools.net or text or call on my google voice number: 775 391-0719

    I look forward to a productive year!
