Welcome to Mrs. Mukerjee's 8th Grade CORE Webpage!
In 8th grade CORE, we cover content that is exciting and challenging!
8th Grade English emphasizes critical reading of various literary selections and analysis through discussion, essays, projects, and speeches. Students will examine the links among culture, history, and literature. We will also focus on grammar, language mechanics, vocabulary and writing.
In Social studies, we cover issues and events from the framing of the Constitution up to World War I. Students will study the development of American politics, society, culture, and economy and then relate them to the emergence of major regional differences and consequences of the Civil War. We make connections between the rise of industrialization and contemporary social and economic conditions.
