The 8th grade AC ELA students are off to a good start. Students are truly learning how to use the new tools we’ve examined to get them through any and all short answer responses – EXCITING!

Unit One is all about understanding...The Challenge of Heroism

Because this word is used every day – in television shows, movies, video games, books, the news, school, and conversations – we rarely take time to actually think about what it means. Students will research, read, and write to develop a more complex understanding of this important societal and cultural concept.

Next week, we will review the expectations of our upcoming summative Narrative & Presentation.

Stay tuned!

Thank you parents for all you do to help me support your student!
