Colleen Egle

English 8

Welcome to English with Mrs. Egle. This year will be a great year for 8th grade English. We will work on moving from concrete thinking to abstract thinking. I will expose students to various genres, and hopefully, expand student's reading scope. We will also work on writing and discussion skills.

Some of the units covered in 8th grade include:

*Kansas University Writing Strategies
*Research skills and writing
*The Diary of Anne Frank
*WWII novels
*Creative Writing
*Literature Circles
*Utopian Novels
*Autobiography of Gordon Parks
*Reading poetry and short stories and identifying and understanding figurative language

HG English 8:
Same as above and "The Decade of Change 1940's"- William and Mary
