8th Grade Language Arts

Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts!  You will receive instruction in reading comprehension strategies as well as thorough instruction in the writing process.  While reading and writing is the primary emphasis of this class, you will participate in academic activities that will enable you to better use your other receptive and expressive skills such as listening, viewing, speaking, and presenting. 

An Honor’s student will be expected to cover concepts at an accelerated pace, to be a valuable participant in class, and to exhibit behavior appropriate to the Honor’s Class environment.  An Honor’s student will be expected to participate in class discussion in a meaningful way.  Additionally, Honor’s students will be required to complete a variety of assignments that go beyond the regular Language Arts Class Requirements.
