Grade 8 ELA- Mrs. Kersey

 

We will follow many of the same routines as we did last year with a few exceptions.  We will continue our vocabulary studies along the same routine.  We will begin a unit and the test will follow two weeks later.   You can still earn a homework pass if you “catch me using” our vocabulary words during the day!  As for our reading log, this year you will be recommending books on our class page at Goodreads.com.


This term in Literature we will be focusing on tone, mood, and author's style. We will begin with a look at Gothic Fiction.

The focus in writing this year, is finding your own voice and style.  Don’t worry, you will still be writing a lot!  We will continue to work on grammar skills as well.
