Welcome to Ms. Farrer and Mrs. Bonilla's English 8 Class!
What an exciting year you are beginning! Soon you will be starting high school and will be preparing to enter the real world. This year our main goals will be to equip you with the skills that will ensure your success in high school and in life. The English 8 course will provide students with a course in composition and literary analysis that will foster the development of a wide variety of skills pertaining to writing, public speaking, reading, and research. The course offers students the opportunity to sharpen their analytical and critical thinking skills necessary for success in high school. Furthermore, our course goals will seek to connect to a deeper purpose in each student.
Our purpose as your teachers is to not only give you all the tools to be successful, but also to empower you! You have a voice that deserves to be heard, and our goal is to teach you how to make people hear you. Just like a textbook or technology, we am here to help you in any way that you need to succeed. This is going to be a great year!
Please make sure to check Moodle weekly. Weekly updates will appear on this page and on Moodle. Once students have their PASS laptops, most of their assignments will be available through Moodle and through OneNote.
