Welcome to 8th Grade Pre-AP Language Arts!


Mrs. Riley's Remind 101:

text @4c67






For the 3rd 9 weeks, we will be looking at the essential question: "What drives people to find answers?"  We will be reading Anthem by Ayn Rand as our whole class novel for the 3rd 9 weeks. Students DO NOT have to buy the book. We have a classroom set.  We will also be doing literature circles for the 3rd 9 weeks.  Students will have a choice of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Maze Runner by James Dashner, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children  by Ransom Riggs, or Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard for literature circles.


 1/8- 1/29

    These next few weeks we will be doing literature circles using the novels mentioned above.  Students will be asked to complete the literature circle packet, which can be found by clicking on the Handouts tab, as well as being asked to as they read each chapter pick out powerful words/phrases that are used in each chapter and a short explanation as to why they chose those words/phrases.  They will write the words/phrases in their notebooks.
