RED204: Reading 8 (2021)

The (year-long) Reading course, grade 8, is aligned with College and Career Ready Learning Standards and designed for students to develop skills and strategies to read appropriately complex grade level text, both informational and literary. Students will analyze how connections and distinctions are made within a text. Students will continue to build on the learning from grade 7 to develop increasingly sophisticated understanding of language and the impact language has on meaning and tone in a piece of text. Students will evaluate the use and application of different mediums to develop and share knowledge.
