elcome to 8th Grade English and Literature class!  I am delighted to have you as a student!  And I invite you to prepare your imaginations for a journey where we will encounter heroes, villains, the redeemed, and the fallen.  Over the course of the year, you will meet classic characters (Kino, Napoleon the Pig, Scrooge, Scout, Atticus Finch, Romeo, Juliet and many more), and you will grow in your understanding of the great conversation literature presents – the conversation about what it is to be human.  You can join the great conversation and, in addition, cultivate new ideas and skills that will develop you into a stronger reader, writer, speaker, and thinker.
