Visual Aid Visual aid is useful to the presentation and helps illustrate the point they are trying to make. If necessary, additional props are used. Visual aid is useful but has too many words. Student relies on the words on their visual aid. Lack of additional props. Visual aid is minimal or too extensive. If it is minimal, it does not help the audience understand the presentation.

Language Arts November 30 – December 4

The 8th graders are nearly half through their first book, Jacob, Have I Loved.  They are getting in the habit of answering chapter questions, exit slips and chapter vocabulary in a similar fashion as the other grades.  This done to help with a deeper understanding of the text and to understand certain literary terms to expand their understanding of certain conflicts, character development and author’s approach.  This week is the Science Fair which the 8th graders are participating.  We may have to adjust the schedule to accommodate the fair activities.  There will be homework on chapter questions 8 & 9 due Tuesday and Wednesday.  No testing.
