Welcome to 8th grade ELA!!
My preparation period is from 7:47-8:51 and also 9:50-10:43
Monday-Friday if there are any questions or
concerns. The phone number is 457-7386. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions concerning your son or daughter.
The English book that we may use from time to time is Elements of Language.
http://www.go.hrw.com. The reading textbook that we will use from time to time is entitled Elements of Literature (second course).
Students will need to have a hard cover journal, a pocket folder, plenty of paper, binder and BLACK or BLUE PENS but most of all, a good attitude, to be successful this school year.
For ELA this 2015-2016 school year, classes are in block format which means that your child will have the same teacher for both reading and English, which is called Eng./Language Arts in Powerschool. In addition, literary units have been developed for use in the parish and should provide rigor and relavance as well as meaning as learning takes place.
