Hello students and families! 

These are indeed unusual times. I wanted to let you know that myself as well as your other teachers are still committed to providing you with the best education possible despite external circumstances. It is important to continue to learn while we are confined to our homes so when this virus passes, we will be ready to return and take the next steps with losing as little ground as possible. We will get through this!!! Please visit Google Classroom daily for our assignments and more information. Every student in 8th Grade ELA is already registered and knowledgeable of how to navigate our Classroom. Just simply log into your school Google account and everything will be ready to go!

About our class and myself: 

Language Arts 8 is a Common Core driven course that stresses the use of English language in reading, writing, and speaking. Units include novels, short stories, non fiction, poetry, and drama. Outside projects and oral presenations will be required in connection with some units.

My name is Dan Battaglia and I am in my sixth year at Field Middle School and eighth year in education. My wife and I, along with our three sons, live in Brimfield and love being part of the Field community. In addition to teaching, I am also the Power of the Pen coach, head JV softball coach, and varsity assistant and JV volleyball coach at Field High, and in the summers I work for the Cleveland Indians as a statistician.

8th Grade English is a critical stepping stone in the development of students preparing for high school. We will be focusing on intense writing and reading more complex texts that will develop skills aligned with the Common Core that will give students the tools they need to be successful this year on all state exams while preparing them for High School
