THE 8TH GRADE ADVANCED LANGUAGE ARTS APPLICATION IS NOW OPEN FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR!
Students in the advanced course engage in a highly-differentiated curriculum in order to help prepare them for advanced classes in high school. In addition to analyzing text and writing academic essays, students participate in literature circles, Socratic seminars, expert panel discussions, blog posts, and 20time projects. Students are also exposed to higher-level learning through an introduction to Shakespeare and literary criticism theory. Students are admitted into the program through an application in the spring. The expectation is that students have a strong foundation in reading and writing upon entering the program.
Applications are being accepted starting April 21st, 2020 until the deadline on Friday, May 8th, 2020.
Please note that there is no guarantee that you will get into the ADV ELA program. Upon completion of this application, we will review your information, contact your 7th grade ELA teacher to see if he/she recommends you for the course and we will look at class size availability. After turning in your application, you do not need to do anything else to be considered for ADV ELA. If you are accepted, you will automatically be enrolled for next year.
