Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts with Mrs. Morse!
We made it through the Writing SOL! Next on our agenda is a new reading assignment! P 1, 2, 4, and 5 will be starting The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. During this unit, students will research the author, be introduced to new academic vocabulary, and explore the application of literary skills previously covered this school year. My P3 (Cambridge Literature) will be starting a poetry unit. During our poetry unit we will be reading and analyzing an assortment of poems. Please see the calendars to the left for details and upcoming assignment deadlines.
**I am available, by request, most Tuesdays and Thursdays after school for homework help, test/quiz retakes, or help in general.**
Homework Policy: Homework assignments will consist of studying the monthly roots/affixes/vocabulary, completing tasks on NoRedInk.com, working on long-term projects (when applicable), and completing unfinished classwork (when applicable). The purpose of homework is to continue the work we have started in class and allow the student to practice, study, and spend more time on large assignments.
If you need to contact me for any reason, the easiest and fastest route is e-mail!
