I teach 8th grade English Language Arts and 8th grade Social Studies at North Star.
Students will read and study Shakespeare as well as classic American authors.
Part of our Language Arts curriculum will include "Playing with Poetry" a classroom program presented by TheatreWorks. Students will have a chance to explore and participate in poetry presentations And then culminate in attending a live theater performance by TheatreWorks.
The Social Studies curriculum in 8th grade is American History and Government. We have a chance to visit the California State Capital to see government in action.
Student's can check their class assignments thru Google Classrooms.
Parents can check their student's grade thru the Parent Portal link found on the North Star website.
