Mrs. Anne Rack
Welcome to my page!
This is my 15th year teaching 8th grade English Language Arts (ELA) at Forest Park Middle School - and I love my job and students! To this day, I keep in touch with past students and enjoy visiting with them and their families.
My overall goal is to prepare 8th graders for high school. To that end, we read and respond to a variety of classic novels, nonfiction text, short fiction, poetry, and drama. We write weekly, focusing on the writing process of brainstorming, drafting, editing, and revising. Public speaking is also a major focus and students will present much of their written work, creative projects, Animoto book trailers, timelines, and Holocaust projects, as well as perform Romeo & Juliet, compete in a class-wide Poetry Slam, and portray Historical figures in a costumed speech.
All homework assignments, resources, due dates, and class work are on Google Classroom. I am confident this will be a successful, enjoyable year for all!
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents and guardians are always welcome to visit our class!
