This is eight grade Language Arts, and I am your house 8-2 Language Arts teacher. Language Arts will really help you in the future that is why it is so important that I help you this year with your writing and reading this year. This year we will be exploring the importance of reading and writing, and will be learning strategies to help you. We will be exploring many different types of writing. We will be writing in Journals, we will be writing essays, and we will be working on worksheets all year. For reading we will be reading one novel every month and for every novel you read you will have to fill out a "Novel Reading Packet".
