8th Grade

8th grade curric3

In 8th Grade, we complete all seven patterns of Shurley English.  Students are able to recognize all parts of speech in sentences, including the Object Complement, Nouns, and Adverbs.  Writing abilities are heavily focused on throughout the year, and sentence structure is expected to be descriptive, correctly written, and maintain a good flow.  Students are exposed to Verbals at the end of the year, which will greatly prepare them for high school writing exercises.  Students will exit the school year with a firm handle on both written and oral language.
