Corps of Discovery eighth grade language A students will be concentrating on the theme of Responsibility during the 2012-2013school year. During each quarter, we will focus on a concept which will determine the novels, short stories, plays, and nonfiction selections Corps students will read. Following is a list of quarterly concepts: first quarter--roles, second quarter--relationships, third quarter--adversity, fourth quarter--risks. In addition to improving reading skills, Corps students will focus on descriptive writing in preparation for the state writing test which will be administered during second semester.
I have taught in Omaha Public Schools for over thirty years. The 20012-13 school year begins my fourth year at Lewis and Clark and my second year implementing the IB curriculum. I look forward to working with and challenging your children using this exciting new curriculum.
