ELA for 8th Grade
In 8th grade ELA we will be continuing the holistic/theme-based approach in examining key concepts aligned with Common Core standards. Here we will be manipulating different forms of texts which employ the students opportunities to create and develop relevant and long lasting connections. In addition we will synthesize grammar conventions, vocabulary, and reading comprehension cohesively to build and enhance our curricula. We are starting our unit on the Holocaust being exposed to a variety of first hand accounts of survivors through use of documentaries, videos, plays, stories, etc. Here we will also do research and compose a thesis on the events revolving around the Holocaust.
