Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts 2018-19!
Thank you for visiting. Please use this site for contact information, assignment calendar, and resources.
*SUMMER READING: Hope you've enjoyed a book from the 8th grade summer reading list. Also, you must read 1 novel of choice. You will be assessed on both.
**Advice for Summer Reading: As you read, you can help yourself by jotting notes about the elements of fiction: setting, character, plot, conflict, and theme. ALSO, the first assessment for summer reading will be for your novel of free choice. Focus on how and when the protagonist of the novel is hopeful or brave. If the protagonist has not been hopeful or brave, focus on when and how a protagonist could have been hopeful or brave.
Throughout the 2018-19 school year, students need to access the following websites:
Quizlet, Kahoot, Quizizz, Newsela, The New York Times Learning Network, and Flipgrid.
Other sites may be added throughout the school year.***REMINDER: Access to lists on Quizlet are subject to my verification of a student's account. Student/parent signs up for a Quizlet acccount and then applies for admission to the sites I monitor. Quizlet notifies me whenever someone applies for admission to MrsCAcademicEnglish, MrsCReading, or MrsCAdvancedEnglish.
