Grade 8 Common Core English
Grade 8 Common Core English & Grammar Mechanics is for students who have completed 8th grade. The Common Core State Standards require children leaving 8th grade to know the function of gerunds, participles, and infinitives and to use them correctly; to understand verb voice and mood; to form and use verbs in active and passive tense; to demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling; and to use various strategies to master unknown vocabulary. The 30 lessons of mixed review over a 10-week period provide ongoing practice that ensures retention of these important language and literacy skills and concepts. By completing a lesson 3 times per week, students enter high school ready to learn new material right away.
