• Welcome to Ms. Ball's class!

    8th Grade Language Arts 

     

    Greetings parents/guardians! I am elated to be one of the 8th grade ELA teachers at Stockbridge Middle School this year. I have been teaching since 2009 and recently moved to Georiga from North Carolina. My passion is teaching, and I am an advocate for being a lifelong learner. I look forward to an amazing school year! 

    In unit one, students will read both literary and informational texts about self-discovery and finding one’s place in the world, especially within the middle school setting. As part of their reading, students will also acquire and use grade-level appropriate vocabulary.  Students will focus on informative writing, with appropriate grammar study embedded. Our first couple of weeks will focus on citing evidence of theme and central idea; summarizing; developing historical background; writing about texts.

     

    Tutor times: Tuesdays (8:00-8:30) and Wednesdays (4:30-5:00).
