During marking period 1 in Literacy, we will be covering the grade 8 reading literature standards. We will be reading a series of short stories, poems, and some non-fiction articles that range in concept and topic. These works will accompany the students in working through analyzing elements such as theme, allusions, and inferencing.
For Written Expression, we will be practicing and sharpening our narrative writing skills utilizing some of the things we pick up in literacy (such as specific word choice and connotation). We will open up to creativity and risk-taking as we expand on descriptions and small moments to create serious imagery.
Be aware of rolling assignments such as vocabulary, Achieve3000, and Study Island,
All of which integrate with skills covered in class!
