Kistler - Language Arts Grade 8 - 19-20

Welcome to 8th grade ELA!  I am so excited for this school year.  As we begin, I want you to know that I am starting with the end in mind.  I want my students to be prepared for the challenge of high school when they leave my classroom in June.  For that reason, our class is:

Preparing for High School- advanced classes

-Faster pace

-More intense study of literature

-Deeper understanding of author's craft


This year we will be utilizing:


  • Literature
  • Book Clubs
  • Reader’s Workshop
  • Writer’s Workshop



In addition, we will be studying grammar and writing styles to prepare for high school course work.


I am excited for this year, and I can't wait to share my love of literature and writing with you!
