Eighth grade is a transition year. Writing assignments, for instance, are definitely more challenging than 8th graders may be accustomed to. Being able to express opinions and defend them in writing is a state SOL objective. As students begin making the transition to high school, they will be held to such basic standards as writing in complete sentences. In addition, the County has tasked social studies teachers this year with providing frequent critical thinking activities to our students. All of this means that students must apply themselves with diligence in order to achieve at the highest levels.
