    Welcome to 8th grade English/Language Arts. Our goals for the year are to learn to read and think as writers, and to look at texts through a writer’s eye. We will be reading and writing poetry, narratives, informational, and argumentative texts. You will have the opportunity to read engaging, thought-provoking texts and novels you won’t want to put down.  Through examining these exemplary texts, you will build your skills as a writer and be able to communicate your ideas effectively. We will also spend time building your vocabulary and technological skills. Discussion, both speaking and listening, as well as working in collaboration with others will play a large role in class and help to prepare you for the college and career world.  I look forward to spending the year learning with you!
