Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today, we started class with vocabulary. We read the excerpt at the beginning of Unit 1 and will continue to discuss a few of the words each day. Afterwards we moved to start reading S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. This book covers many deep themes and topics that we will explore in depth. We immediately identified ways of division in the book. I also explained that the book's author S.E. Hinton is a woman who wrote this book when she was only sixteen years old because she could not relate to books that were already out in the 60s. 

For our second period, we were in the computer lab. Each student created an Archive page for last year's Independent Novel page and then a new Independent Novels 2017-2018 page was created. Students had the opportunity to work on their Weebly pages and Google Classroom Assignments.
