• Each day in 8th Grade Language Arts we will be actively practicing and building our Indiana Literacy Framework State Standards in reading and writing.  We will work on reading and writing with fluency and building stamina.  Our curriculum consists of EL Education, as well as daily warm-ups writing prompts, and independent reading time.  


    Throughout the school year we will be writing several essays, including a narrative, definition essay, and argumentative essay.  The essays are tied to our high priority Indiana Literacy Framework Writing Standards 8.W.3.1, 8.W.3.2, and 8W.3.3. We will also work on creative writing and stretching our minds through writing in various formats.
