Course Description

English 8 is designed to prepare eighth-grade students to write academic essays in high school and college. The yearlong course emphasizes writing a strong thesis statement and using it as a roadmap for writing a well-structured essay with an introduction, body, and conclusion. Students write four expository essays and one research paper. Essay topics, class discussions, and vocabulary words come from the literature students read for class. Grammar lessons are a part of the weekly class time.

This is a non-charter class.
