Welcome to Honors and On-Level 8th grade ELAR!
This class will be continuing the challenges of Honors course work which allows for the student to be learning at a faster pace with compacted curriculum. The material is often one to two years above grade level, with a focus on close reading, finding and explaining textual evidence, and the choice and structure of language an author chooses to convey their message to the reader.
This course is to better prepare your student to move in to high school level Honors classes, which are also taught one to two grade levels ahead. Honors classes move into college level work in the later high school years.
This class will continue exploring the skills in ELAR, however, pushing critical thinking, depth of thought, and experiencing different genres and cultures in reading and writing. This course will prepare your student to move into high school level work whether they choose to stay on on-level classes or move into Honors classes.
