CLASS DESCRIPTION
 
In eighth-grade language arts, we will focus on the essential life skills of reading, writing, speaking, viewing, and listening. Making a leap forward in terms of text complexity, students will navigate both fiction and nonfiction with a strong emphasis on close reading and careful selection of textual evidence.
 
Eighth-grade language arts will be marked by a heightened expectation for analysis, insightful commentary, and critical thinking. We will strive for an increased awareness of author's intent and a maturation of writing in terms of style and complexity.  
 
I value fun, humor, hard work, and routine and seek to empower students to be self-sufficient thinkers and communicators!
