Welcome to 8th Grade English Homepage!
For the Month of September:
Students will be writing/completing an Informative paper.
The class started near the end of August, and we were working on the outline, draft and final copy in class.
The Informative Paper will be due on Friday, September 6, 2019.
A typed hard copy, with the outline and rough draft attached, will be handed in at the beginning of class.
Students will begin The Outsiders on Monday, September 9.
I have copies for students, but if they want to annotate the book, they need to bring their own copy to class.
Reminder: Tutoring is every Wednesday morning from 8am-8:30 (unless otherwise notes). There is a sign-up sheet in the back of the classroom, or a student can email me to let me know s/he will be attending.
I meet the students at the back bus gate at 8am.
Students will be learning about active and passive voice, along with the functions of certain sentence types.
Students will work on descriptive writing and MLA format.
