English 8

Students in eighth grade Language & Literature focus on the concept of “big ideas” which takes them into lifelong adventures in learning that are both within and across disciplines and subjects. Four key ideas that have been identified as the framework for language and literature are communication, connections, creativity, and perspective, and four objectives are used to set standards for evaluation:  analysing, organizing, producing text, and using language. In Language & Literature 8, the study of literary genres provides a model to foster creative and interpretive student writing development.  Students will analyze various forms of literature and compose different writing types based on the literary works—including non-fiction essays, novels, poetry, and drama—read in class. L&L reinforces grammar through No Red Ink, and vocabulary is included as a separate study to be integrated into all writings.
