This workbook is designed to help students review for the eighth grade New York State English Language Arts exam. It is full of high-interest literary and informational passages, illustrations, and listening and writing activities. The gradual release model is used to give students the skills they need to master the exam and build their confidence along the way. A complete answer key booklet is provided for the teacher.
Although the material mirrors the pre-2012 exam, it is still fully relevant to the next generation exam and the common core. It can also be used for general language arts skills practice and/or daily warm up activities for reading, writing, and listening.
