Mrs. Lori Rossbachlori.firstname.lastname@example.org(410) 758-0883Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts! We are going to have a SPECTACULAR year. This year we will explore the art of communications—how does one convey ideas so that others understand and support those ideas?
Like an artist creating an image by applying precise brush strokes at precise places on canvas, we will create communications (essays and speeches) by applying precise words at precise places on paper! We will become wordsmiths, masters of the English language, by practicing daily exercises that include analyzing texts composed by master writers, discussing conventions in those texts, and then composing texts ourselves! (The same way a master athlete practices daily drills.)
Be sure to email me if you have any questions or idea. Parents, you can visit our Google Classroom by signing in with your student's login, to view daily and/or weekly activities. I can't wait to work with you.
Fondly,Mrs. RossbachWhere Retrievers BARK!Be prepared.Act responsibly.Respect others.Keep safety in mind.
