• Language Arts 8-2: Period-G

    Instructor: Ms. Stoller

    It is with excitement and enthusiasm that I introduce the Grade 8 Level 2 curriculum.  In this dynamic course, students will consistently work on their reading comprehension skills and writing skills.  Students will learn to annotate and become active readers.  They will become adept at using text evidence to provide proof of their thesis statements in writing.  Core texts include Divergent, An Invisible Thread, and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.  Students will learn about the Holocaust by reading the screenplay version of "The Diary of Anne Frank."  Students will be introduce to William Shakespeare and read an abridged version of "Hamlet."  Every eighth grader will participate in the Read 24/7 Independent Reading Program.
