Welcome to 8th Grade English!
This year we will read several classic stories such as:
“The Monkey’s Paw” by WW Jacobs
“The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe
“The Adventure of the Speckled Band” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
“To Build a Fire” by Jack London
“The Diary of Anne Frank” – a play version
“The Outsider” by HP Lovecraft
“The Gift of the Magi” by O Henry
In English class we will write clear sentences and paragraphs to create personal narratives, informational essays, and argumentative essays. Vocabulary development and grammar comprehension will help us as building blocks to becoming better writers and readers.
Please use the homework calendar button on the right to check on the daily work and assignments. 🙂
8th grade is an important springboard to success in high school. We will work hard so the students feel confident and ready!
