Eighth grade Language Arts is best described as a literature class with a strong emphasis on writing. As this class is a team effort with Mr. Mahoney teaching the writing component and Mrs. D'Amico literature, students are offered a wide variety of both theory and applied methodology.
Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts! I am looking forward to spending the school year with you. As you absorb yourself in your last year in middle school, we will work to prepare you for high school and life. You will have challenging experiences and fun learning opportunities. Come prepared, committed, engaged, and ready to learn!
