I am excited to be teaching 8th grade English this year, and I am looking forward to be working with your children. In English this year, there will be a strong focus on essay writing. In addition to essay writing, we will be focusing on reading many works of literature, different types of writing, grammar, vocabulary, and much more.
Supplies for this class include: a binder or some type of folder to put weekly assignments and handouts in, a pencil or pen, lots of lined paper, and a reading book.
Powerschool is a valuable tool for you to monitor your child’s progress in English, as well as his/her other classes. Please check Powerschool often.
I have included much more information about the course on the syllabus for my class, so please refer to it often for policies and other items. My class syllabus is posted on this website.
If you need to contact me, my school phone number is 245-6433 ext. 1243. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Email is the best way to reach me, because I check it throughout the day.
