Welcome to 8th Grade ELA

THE PLOT THICKENS!
This week in 8th grade ELA we will be discussing plot and how various elements of the plot help to "move" the story.
"The Flight of Icarus" by Jacob Peter Gowy will be our passage of focus.  Students will be engaged in learning how to identify the parts of the plot diagram and utilize the diagram to assist with understanding fictional passages.
 
The Year 2020 has brought about many new obstacles, but we will get through it together. Working and learning together, we will conquer the ascribed status of having to battle COVID-19, and aspire towards the achieved status of "educated despite COVID-19".
