The course focuses on the interpretation of literary works, analysis of informational texts, and the development of oral and written communication skills in standard (formal) English. Students read between the lines to interpret literature and go beyond the text to discover how the culture in which a work of literature was created contributes to the theme and ideas it conveys. Analysis of the structure and elements of informational texts and media helps students develop the skills needed for academic success and the navigating the world.

Language Arts 8 is an enriching course that provides many opportunities for students to explore reflective, relevant, and relatable material! Our students love the opportunity to read and evaluate modern texts while still building on foundational writing and grammatical skills.
