WELCOME TO 8TH GRADE ELA

Find out about all the programs we use in our classroom!

Class Chatter

Class Chatter is an online webpage that allows students and teachers to interact online outside of the classroom. The teacher creates a login specific to each student. The students or teacher can create a blog/discussion post about a topic and everyone can post comments. This tool is a great way for students to do an online discussion board for homework. Or they can use this as an option for the final project by creating a topic of discussion that students must respond to in order to receive a grade. The teacher can also post grades on there so its a convenient way for students to keep up with their grades outside of school.

IN OUR CLASS WE WILL USE THIS FOR:

  • Debates
  • Class Discussions on readings
  • Reading Circle Assignments
