The same 8th grade curricular benchmarks and indicators will be taught following a more rigorous pace and using more challenging activities and resources. Students will focus on in-depth inquiries using higher levels of thinking and will be expected to consistently perform at high levels. A student meeting the established placement criteria may enroll in the Advanced Language Arts class.
