Welcome to 8th grade Reading/Language Arts!!
One main goal of this course is to get students to enjoy reading. If they enjoy what they read, they will think more critically about what they read. In this course, students will read a variety of literature and informational texts. Students will be required to think critically about these texts and write in response to each text they read. Higher level thinking skills will be developed and enhanced during the year through reading, writing, and class discussions.
