    WELCOME to 8th Grade English!!

    I am excited to work with all of my students this year in order to help them improve their knowledge of literature and to work on their writing. During this year, students will read some fabulous literature such as: True Grit by Charles Portis, This I Believe, George Orwell's Animal Farm, Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, Paul Fleischman's Whirligig, and William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. They will read poetry from Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Blake.  Students will work on journal entries, persuasive writing, narrative writing, compare/contrast essays, and creative writing.  They will work on grammar skills, collaborative projects and 21st century skills using technology. Please look for more information in my Schoology learning management system. I look forward to a wonderful year!
