Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts!
Eighth Grade Language Arts is an integrated approach to language built around a collection of classic and contemporary literature which includes a mix of genres with a variety of cultural perspectives. Students will interpret the meaning of literary selections through the analysis of such concepts as plot, mood, theme, and author’s style. Nonfiction pieces will also be introduced within each unit of study. Additionally, the course will offer multiple opportunities for students to enhance their written and oral communication skills. Writing workshops, grammar and vocabulary instruction, and activities that foster oral communication and research skills will be incorporated throughout the school year.
