Students hunt for and correct errors in daily passages that cumulatively tell a story. Students will apply new grammar knowledge in context, aiding in the transfer of grammar skills into their own writing. 

Students will develop their writing skill while learning about interesting, important people and events in U.S. history from the explorers to the twentieth century. An optional literature component studies six novels that integrate with the historical topics used for writing assignments.This class is open to any middle school student.

Students will gain understanding of the development of literature and will learn the skills of literary analysis. Focus works, including novels, short stories, poems, and drama, have been selected for literary quality, interest, and for their place in the historical development of literature. Context readings provide background information about the author, the historical period, and the literary and artistic context of the focus work. This class is open to eighth grade students only.
