MID ELAR 8B / Online

Welcome to English 8B! English 8 is designed to provide a bridge from the lower grades to the high school-level work you will encounter in the ninth grade. Eighth-grade English will serve a twofold purpose: to review concepts you previously learned and to introduce concepts you must be familiar with in high school classes. The course covers several areas: reading strategies, literature studies, vocabulary development, spelling review, writing for a variety of purposes and modes, editing and proofreading skills, speaking and listening skills, research skills, visual and media representations, and principles of grammar and punctuation as they relate to writing.
