8th Grade Language Arts

  • Our 8th grade language arts class is designed to increase student’s communication skills through reading, writing, speaking, and the study of the English language.  Our primary focus in our language arts class will be to master different writing styles, better understand the rules of grammar, and the ability to effectively communicate.

    We will be reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books including novels, short stories, poetry, and close reading essays.  Writing assignments will include timed responses, journal writing, essays, critiques, and creative pieces.  Vocabulary, spelling, and grammar assignments will also be an important part of this class. We are a community of learners, please also expect to work periodically in group situations and to present information to your peers.
