8th Grade Literature

We will draw from a variety of sources to meet Common Core State Standards for Literacy, such the 8th grade Literature textbook series, novels, articles, and short stories. 

We will be utilizing a web-based program called Achieve 3000 as a differentiated approach that students will use weekly with consistent participation and grading requirements provided among all Literature classes. The article questions, called the article activities, must be completed at school.  Students may write their Thought Question responses in or out of school.

We will also be utilizing the web-based program called Accelerated Reading.  Students will be required to read books and take online assessments on those books to earn points, and grades.  Students will have time each week to visit the library to check out AR books, and read silently in class.

We will also be using a text book series and novel studies to cover reading skills.
