• 8th ELA

    Welcome to 8th grade English/Language Arts!

    I'm so excited see all of you and helping you prepare for HIgh School. On this page you will find important resources and documents to help you. If you are absent be sure to check the agenda page and the class Absent Bin. This year we will be reading 2 novels, classic short stories, practicing and improving our writing skills by analyzing and writing narrative, informative, and argumentative essays, plays, and creating and presenting using various forms of multimedia. You will be expected to read daily from your own books. There will be an end of the nine-week project based on your independent book. We will be checking out books every other week. 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 to know that I am very excited about being in the classroom with you. My plan is for us to learn from each other and support each other.

    I look forward to a productive year!
