Mrs. Bourcy's Language Arts Page
Welcome to 8th grade English language arts!
Check this page often for class announcements, updates, and due dates!
1) Career Research Unit in progress! Use your yellow book to help you take note cards and bibliography cards ( Pgs. 22-24 for Bibliography information and pgs. 22 & 27 for note taking)
* Due this week: an additional 20 notecards and 2 additional bibliography cards
*Begin to think about your interview with someone in that profession. See pgs. 5 and 20 in yellow book to help you. Talk to your parents, teachers, etc. to see if anyone has a contact in that profession. If you do not know someone in that profession, begin to look on line or in the library resources to see if premade interviews exist ( print or video) on your topic. See me if you are struggling to find an interview. Do not wait until writing the paper...
3) 2 week red bookmark due Friday, 1/26 ( 3 hours total for the two weeks)
"The more that you read, the more things that you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places that you'll go."
