8th Grade English

Course Description

This 8th grade ELA course was designed to provide Oklahoma teachers with digital content resources to support the OAS standards. Each standard has multiple digital resources that can be modified. The digital resources include Apple apps, websites, links to multimedia resources, and other open educational resources.

Eight overarching standards, the College- and Career- Ready English Language Arts standards, identify the knowledge and skills of the discipline that PK-12 students are to learn; each standard for every grade is delineated at the appropriate level. A PK-12 vertical progression of standards, organized by the eight overarching standards, allows for educators to recognize how all the standards are intertwined to develop the total literacy of a student. When a skill is no longer present, mastery is implied; however, teachers must support previous grade level skills according to the mastery level of their students. This grade-to-grade, standard-by-standard progression can be viewed in a horizontal format, organized into overlapping grade bands.  

 

The progression of language arts learning from pre-kindergarten through high school should reflect a grade-level appropriate relationship between the level of critical thinking students use and the actual listening, speaking, reading, and writing experiences students have. There are 8 specific standards for ELA and many supporting objectives under each standard. The 8 standards include Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing Process, Critical Reading and Writing, Vocabulary, Language, Research, Multimodal Literacies, and Independent Reading and Writing. These standards and their objectives should be taught together (bundled) instead of in isolation. Many of the online resources will assist in the bundled process. 

If you have any questions, see links that no longer work, have suggestions for new resources, or would like to contribute to this resource please contact the ELA content manager, Suzanne Holt at seholt@baschools.org.
