Teacher Bio Curriculum Homework

This is my 14th year of teaching, and my 2nd year at MIMS. Last year I was the 7th grade ELA teacher, but this year I'll be teaching 8th grade. 

I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis for my undergraduate degree, and received my Master's degree from the University of St. Thomas. 

Outside of school (I know, shocking that a teacher does things outside of school) I enjoy movies, reading, video games, and being a father to my two kids. 

If you would like to contact me, please email me at marcusl@iecmail.net

The 8th grade is your final stop before you move into high school. This year we will focus on: 

  • Reading Comprehension 
  • Vocabulary 
  • Spelling 
  • Context Clues 
  • Finding Main Idea and Support Details

...and much, much more! 

You can practice your 8th Grade Language Arts skills on IXL andStudy Island. Your user name and passwords are in your planner.

You can practice reading skills on Reading Plus. Our site code is rpminne1.

 

Rubrics for this class can be found here

For our current unit, we will be focusing on the Point of View Rubric (8.4.6.6)
