Mr. Rossi's 8th Grade

The 8th grade is really enjoying and progressing in learning Spanish with Rosetta Stone. It will be a big help to those of us taking a language next year in high school.
In the second trimester we will be studying the Age of Industry in 8th grade Social Studies. It is always fun to learn about the inventions of the late 1800s. We will also study about the immigrants coming to the United States and their contributions to our country. We may get as far as Teddy Roosevelt and the Spanish-American War.
We are doing well with our new reading series which is helping to prepare us for our last Terra Nova tests at LaSalle Academy. The stories are interesting even though the questions are a lot more difficult. We are doing more writing than in past years - incorporating social studies and language arts.
