Welcome to English/Language Arts 8! I'm exciting to work with you this year to improve reading, writing, and research. Please come ready to learn every day. Bring your Chromebook, a blue or black pen or pencil, paper, and a folder or binder for this class. All assignments are available and should be turned in through Google Classroom.
Current ELA Unit: What is home?
We read Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. We will learn a reading technique called close reading that emphasizes reading again and again to learn more and more information about a text. Students will maintain a Reader's Journal.
