English Language Arts (ELA) is a literature-based writing course. Students will also learn to review and critique writing to improve revising and editing skills. Evidence based writing will be a focus during the year, as the NSCAS ELA test requires that students are able to explain their thinking using evidence from a passage that has been read closely.
We are working on Wit & Wisdom Grade 8.
