Welcome! I am very happy you are here.

This year, our 8th grade ELA/Reading students will focus on at least eight of our Tennessee Essential Learning objectives including, but not limited to, summarizing and forming inferences based on text evidence; composing an argumentative text; determining connotative and denotative meanings of unfamiliar and multi-meaning words using context clues/key words, word roots, and analogies; composing an explanatory/informative product that includes a strong thesis statement and at least three pieces of evidence that connect to and support the thesis; using and explaining the function of verbals such as gerunds, participles, and infinitives in their written product; and correctly forming and using verbs in active/passive voice in their written products.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to email me at mouldp@rcschools.net.
