Welcome to Mr. Squires' English Language Arts (ELA) Class

The grade 8 ELA course will require effort, organization, and homework. September outcomes:
1. Students should have a novel by now. We started 'reading Fridays' last week and will continue for the month of September and first week of October. Students need to bring a novel to class on Fridays and read. Many students will read outside this time period and that is urged. At the end of this 4 week period students will have to design a story map and present in class.
2. Global Citizen unit in the textbook. We will do a series of stories/essays/poems on this theme followed by a poster activity and then a test.
Please note that once students have their Computer Access Acceptance Sheets turned into the HR teacher they will get access to school computers. All students will be expected to use Google Classroom this year. This is where the teacher will post all assignments, resource material and other pertinent materials.
