8th Grade Dystopian Unit of Study
The first unit of study will be focused on Dystopian Literature as we read The Giver. I will also be teaching students how to write an objective summary. Students will be assigned a copy of The Giver to keep with them throughout the unit. They should have their book with them at all times. The first nine weeks AR goal starts Monday, August 9th. Students should have a copy of their AR Log in their pocket folder that remains in their backpack. Students can visit the Media Center during morning care and take AR tests that are signed into their AR Log.
7th Grade Greek Mythology Unit:
Students will start their study of Greek Mythology by reading and comparing different cultural Creation myths including the Greek creation story. They will read several traditional Greek myths and brush up on their writing skills along the way. Throughout this unit, students will be asked to determine the theme of each myth and support their answers with evidence from the text.
