8th Grade English Assignments

Mrs. Rebecca Ortega
2020-2021 School Year
8th Grade
Within this course students will be using a combination of Collections, Rewards, Study Island, as well as additional resources to achieve mastery of the Arizona College and career readiness standards for 8th grade English. We will be working together for a total of two hours a day to cover reading, writing, and grammar studies. Within your schedule this will show as two class periods, reading and composition. This website will be updated routinely so that students, parents, and guardians will have ongoing access to what we are covering in class as well as what is expected for them to accomplish at home.

Week 9 Packets

Week 9 packet assignments for Monday through Wednesday. 
Please know that the paper copy going home to scholars also includes work for Thursday and Friday in the event that Covid messes up out plans. 
Also note, that this digital copy is a substitute for the paper copy but should not be used instead of the paper copy because there are work sheets missing that I didn't have a digital copy of. 
Both grade levels should read and complete comprehension questions at the end of the Student Mental Health Survey Article.
