8th Grade Language Arts

with Mr. Johannes

 

Welcome! This website is designed to allow students and parents easy access to class announcements, documents, and assignments. My hope is that this website will help students, parents, and teachers work together more effectively and efficiently. 

In the "Announcements" section, I will periodically post important information about class activities and assignments. Important news regarding new units, projects, assignments, and activities can be found here. In the "Discussion" section, students will have access to online forums where they can post responses to texts, questions, and their peers. In the "Documents" section, assignments, rubrics, worksheets, and homework documents will be posted for quick and easy access. In the "Classwork and Homework" section, class activities and homework will be posted regularly.

Our Language Arts classes are filled with great texts of different genres and forms, engaging discussions, debates, projects, and a ton of writing and presenting. My goal is to assist students develop literacy skills essential to personal expression, responsible citizenry, and high school, college, and career readiness. While building these skills, every student will be pushed to think critically about meaningful texts and topics that build connections and awareness of the real world around us. We hope that you'll be an active participant in our journey together.

 

Best,

 Mr. Johannes
