Welcome to Mrs. Traeger's 8th grade English class!
My name is Megan Traeger. I am starting my 12th year teaching (my 8th year at NBMS)! I have a BA in Communication Studies and Public Relations from Texas Lutheran University, where I met my husband Andrew. We have two daughters. I love reading, and I love running. But more than anything, my passion is my classroom.
We have a ton of information to cover and learn throughout the year, including, but not limited to:
The 8th Grade English course lays the foundational strategies and skills that will bridge the transition from middle school to high school and help prepare students for the challenge and rigor of the high school Pre-AP/AP courses. Reading selections shall include a variety of genres including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Focus will be on vocabulary development and the understanding of literary elements including plot, character, theme setting, point of view, and author’s tone, mood, and style. The course focuses on close reading, annotation skills, and critical thinking including literary and language analysis. Students will be expected to write in all modes with focus on basic skills for construction, analyzing, and synthesizing. Students will write expository, reflective, and persuasive pieces. The course expectation is to meet the diverse needs of all students that will help them become critical readers, writers, and thinkers.
