Dear 8th Graders and Parents,
It is hard to believe we are half way through the first nine weeks! Time is going quickly, and we are already making some important progress in reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
We are continuing our study of the dystopian novel, The Giver, by Lois Lowry and learning how to write effective responses to rather complex comprehension questions on point of view, plot, theme, setting, symbolism, and characterization. Along with The Giver, we are working on FSA-type questions related to shorter passages of text. In addition, we are reviewing the parts of speech to set the stage for the 8th grade language standards of learning about verbals, and building our knowledge of vocabulary.
Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions that you may have. E-mail is best, however, I can return phone calls during limited times of the day. My email is email@example.com.
