Grade 8 - Language Arts

English: Grammar (Credit: 0.50)

This unit reviews punctuations and capitalization, addresses the parts of speech-nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections-and builds communication skills by explaining clauses and phrases; word agreements; and modifier usage. Students learn how to combine and vary sentences, conjugate verbs, use active or passive voice, and revise fragments, run-ons, and misplaced modifiers.
