8th Grade Language Arts


You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

-C.S. Lewis

In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.

-Phil Collins

What   We   Do...

Book Reports

This is the diorama option completed by a student for their first quarter book report.

Students complete a total of 4 book reports over the year--one per quarter.  These are novels of personal choice and are read independently. They have 8 options to choose from:

   --Book Review

   --Comic Book


   --Movie Pitch


   --Travel Brochure

   --Book Jacket

   --Book Trailer



Our classroom practices a balance of traditional AND project-based assessments. Students are regularly required to complete projects that encourage them to apply what they've learned in a unit and analyze, synthesize, and evaluate relevant information, creating something unique and personal.

This promotes higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills (and it is super fun!!)

Class Novel Studies

Touching Spirit Bear
The Giver
Diary of Anne Frank




Among traditional, formal styles of writing we cover over the year, our students also participate in some unique writing opportunities.

A few examples include:

--Six-Word Memoirs  (featured on the right) 


--Blackout Poetry   (Display wall featured below)
