GENERAL NOTES about 8th grade writing:

Both 8V and 8P have discussed the 8th grade year as a whole, the upcoming high school visitation process, and the end-of-year graduation awards that are anticipated.  Students are in the process of developing 3 individual goals - academic, behavioral, and/or personal - and displaying the goals and ways to reach them on papers that will be hung in each homeroom.  In this way, students will be reminded of their goals each day, all year!    

Students will practice grammar concepts in class using a grammar textbook, worksheets, and class discussion, followed by a short quiz upon completion of each topic.  Students are reminded to stay current in their grammar study and seek extra help if needed immediately.  Each new sentence component will depend on understanding of previously learned parts of speech. 

In addition, grammar concepts and editing and revising skills will be studied using Daily Oral Language each day and Editor-in-Chief worksheets in class/as homework.

"Choose Love" social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum will occur on Mondays for part of English class; information about the curriculum was sent home already.  The four units of study address issues of "courage, gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion in action."  Grade 8 will be focusing on the concept of "gratitude" throughout the course of the year.
