Writing For Your Future
Eighth graders from Nowata Middle School took the 8th grade writing test Wednesday the 25th. This test helps refine and build upon previously learned knowledge and skills through increasingly complex essays. Students are expected to produce coherent and focused multi-paragraph essays that are error free and feature varied sentence structure. Eighth graders select and use different forms of writing for specific purposes such as to inform, persuade, or entertain. They also edit their own essays based on their knowledge of grammar, usage, and punctuation. “The 8th grade writing test was easy if you payed attention in class,” proclaimed Mikinzy McKee.
