Welcome to English 8 AND English Language Development (ELD)!

Welcome to Ms. Johnson-schlesinger's Webpage for English 8 and English Language Development!  Iā€™m excited to be your teacher for this year. During this year we will be covering many aspects of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students will be able to develop critical thinking and demonstrate their understanding of material through project-based learning, tests, quizzes, group and independent study. This class is taught using the general education Common Core curriculum. All standards can be found in the Common Core State Standards and English Language Development Standards.  (See below for links.)
Suggested materials and supplies for this class are listed in the course syllabus attached below. 
Hale uses Schoology to access your child's grades and homework assignments and announcements or contact me through email. To access Schoology, students must activate their email.
