Calvert 8th Grade Language Arts is a survey of literature that explores a range of classic and contemporary literature to convey themes of American history, natural history, world civilization, and air and space. Students also develop writing skills while producing informative, argumentative, and narrative compositions.
Supported by a balance of fictional and informational texts, this online course helps students learn and practice close reading, modeled reading, writing, speaking, and listening strategies. To become critical consumers of text, students also are exposed to increasingly more complex texts to apply those skills, including high-quality contemporary works, the classics of American literature, and Homer’s Iliad.
