8th Grade English Overview

The content standards for 8th grade mark another transition as students prepare to master the skills necessary for high school. The eighth  grade standards represent an important culmination of curriculum and learning emphasized in grades four through eight. In the area of reading, students focus on word analysis, fluency, vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and literary response and analysis. Writing is emphasized through writing strategies, writing applications and genres, and written and oral language conventions. Students also work on effective listening and speaking strategies which will be useful when communicating effectively in the outside world.
