Welcome to 8th grade Enriched English Language Arts!
English Language Arts combines traditional Reading and Language Arts classes to allow students to focus on writing in response to literature and using vocabulary in context. Student assignments are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and provide opportunities for enrichment beyond the 8th grade ELA curriculum.
Assignments will be listed on PowerSchool and directions will be available through GoogleClassroom.
