Writing Objectives for 8th Grade
1. Write more about less.
2. Use correct transition words.

Reading Comprehension Strategies
V=Visualize more details than what the author presents
A=Ask questions about the story and search for the answers
P=Predict events and outcomes based on the information the author gives the reader

Student writing should be free of

- a lot, lots
- got, get, getting
- thing
- stuff
- In this paragraph, in many ways
- you, your, yours (There are exceptions to this one.)
