8th grade English Language Arts (ELA)


******************************************************************************************************************************
Depending on class period your 8th grader may be reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio or The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Standards of Focus are the same for both novels. 

Standards of Focus (1st quarter):
R.L. 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4
This means that:
We will focus on using evidence from the text to strongly support what the text says. 
We will make inferences from the text. 
We will determine the themes/central ideas of our stories and watch how they change over the course of the story. 
We will be able to write an objective summary, with no personal opinions.
We will also analyze how all the parts of a story work together throughout the story.
We will learn new words and phrases that are used in our text.
