Welcome to 8th Grade English!
Our goal for the year is to read and think as writers and to look at texts through a writer's lens. We will read and write poetry, narratives, informational, and argumentative texts. We will have several great novel studies over the course of the school year. By examining these exemplary texts, you will build your skills as a writer and effectively communicate your ideas. We will also build skills in discussion, vocabulary, and technology to better prepare for today's world.
