ILC ELA 8 - 1st Semester
The ILC ELA 8 - 1st Semester materials are designed as a 1st semester course. Semester 1 and Semester 2 will be available separately for download. The following offers a summary of the year-long course: The overarching focus for all modules is building students’ literacy skills as they develop knowledge about the world. The modules are designed to provide teachers with concrete strategies to address the “instructional shifts” required by the standards. The Grade 8 texts consist of Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai; To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee; A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High School by Carlotta Walls LaNier and Lisa Frazier Page, and more. A curriculum map and each unit overview provide specifics relating to learning goals. The Teacher Instructional Guide includes further details.
ILC ELA 8 - 1st Semester should be completed before ILC ELA 8 - 2nd Semester, as it is a year-long course.
