Grade 8 Homeroom and Literature/Language Arts
The Language Arts Program in Junior High is designed to familiarize students with the steps in the Writing Process. Students will learn to write with a particular purpose in mind. Whether it is a Narrative, Descriptive, Expository, or Persuasive essay, the students will learn to develop good writing habits with the six plus one writing program implemented with the Grammar, the genres of Literature, and Spelling. During the year, the students will read many novels through our Independent Reading Program. There are three novels for the required reading for the year which will be discussed on Back-to-School night. It is going to be a great year for learning!
