Huffman Middle School

Welcome to the new Huffman Middle School site!


  Welcome to 8th grade ELA at HMS!
We are in the final unit of study for the year. We will be focused on researching something we are passionate about and presenting the information we find. 
On level classes will attempt to answer their own self-constructed research question and explain their findings. Students will also be creating their own 6 word book talks for one of the three books those chose to read for the nine weeks.
Pre AP classes  will be conducting research to answer a self-constructed research question. Students will also be constructing book projects for one of the three books they chose to read for the nine weeks.
Pre AP students told me they would rather have their choice of book projects this year rather than the book trailers
we made last year. I have taken this into consideration and have created a list of projects for them (see attachments).
Please check out the student created 6 Word Book Talks.

Brod Bagert recites two poems for my 8th graders from his book Hormone Jungle. These are poems for 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the voices of 6th, 7th and 8th graders. It was such a thrill to meet him!
