Daily Paragraph Editing grade 8 provides 36 weeks of frequent, focused language practice to help your eighth graders learn the conventions of standard English grammar and usage. The concise daily activities are ideal “warm-up” exercises to begin your language arts block and are adaptable for small-group and whole-class instruction.
How it works: students apply grade-level language skills to correct a paragraph on Monday through Thursday; when read together, the four paragraphs form a cohesive composition. A writing prompt on Friday relates to the week’s four-paragraph composition and gives students the chance to apply the targeted language conventions.
The weekly compositions cover a broad range of expository and narrative writing forms, including:
nonfiction texts on grade-level social studies and science topics
biographies, book reviews, instructions, interviews, journal entries, and letters
fables, fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, personal narratives,
and realistic fiction
