English Grammar & Comp 8 - Kolbe Academy

English Grammar & Comp 8

Eighth Grade English is designed to teach students to speak and write correctly and effectively.  Students should progress, at this level, to an understanding of English grammar that should suffice for a lifetime of general usage.

Voyages in English offers comprehensive language arts instruction.  It builds students’ confidence as effective writers, readers, listeners, and speakers.  The textbook is organized into two related yet distinct parts: grammar and writing.  The course includes lessons which integrate these two parts to show the relationship between grammar and writing.

In addition to a full grammar course (including sentence diagramming), the eighth-grade text also provides instruction in writing personal narratives, business letters, how-to articles, expository writing, persuasive writing, creative writing, and research reports.

Students should expect to have daily reading, at least one (or more) weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams as assigned by their instructor.  All requirements are assigned and graded by the instructor.

  • Voyages in English 8, Student Edition
  • MLA Handbook Eighth Edition (Optional, but Highly Recommended)

Note: The MLA Handbook is required for all high school courses
