8th Gr. English Language Arts News

Issue #1


Dear parents,

The 8th grade ELA team has decided to pilot a monthly newsletter to share what's going on in our classes, provide reminders, share student voices, and recommend books.

We hope you'll find it useful for both your own information, as well as to encourage discussion with your children.

Please feel free to email us if there's a particular topic or issue you'd like us to address.

Unit 6--What to Expect

In addition to our usual routines of blogging, independent reading, and Class Reads, in this unit, we'll be exploring poetry--both writing our own and curating a collection of published poems on a student-selected theme.
