September Hello, I am excited to start the school year! I believe that this year will be a challenging and fun experience for the 8th grade class. During the first month of school students can expect to review Parts of Speech, Literary Elements, and Traits of Writing. To begin preparing for high school, students will also be expected to participate in writing circles, where they share their work and develop their own higher-level questions responding to each other’s work. Finally, students will start the school year reading a few short stories. Please continue to check my website for updates. I look forward to a thought provoking school year with your students!
October Students are reading The Hate U Give. We will be working on creating questions for discussion, comprehension quizzes, and in class activities. Students can expect to experience a coffee house discussion, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Day, and many other fun events! Please check my twitter to see what we are up to on a day to day basis. Students in Composition are working on their Figurative Language and root words for the month. Please continue to check my website for updates.
