This year in ELA we will be covering 3 of the LA Dept. of Education’s 8th grade Guidebook Units: Flowers for Algernon, Sugar, & Tell-Tale Heart. These units focus on standards relating to literature, specifically the analysis of literature; standards relating to informational text; standards relating to writing, specifically argumentation, informative, explanatory, and narrative styles of writing; standards relating to language, specifically demonstrations of the conventions of Standard English grammar and usage. ELA LIVE sessions will be held everyday, Monday - Friday, at 8am and attendance is required in accordance with the CPSB & La DOE attendance policy. (Please see daily schedule for specific times of your other classes.) Assignments will be given in Canvas each day and will be checked for accuracy & must be submitted by the deadline to receive full credit. (Please see 8th grade CCR Grading Policy for specific details.) I am confident your child can excel as long as they’re committed to following the policies and procedures set forth for this ELA class.  Please feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.  I look forward to partnering with you and your child for a highly successful school year! Remember, for this year to be a success, we ALL need to work to our fullest potential and communication is the key!!  Please check grades weekly through Canvas & Student Progress Center (SPC).
