Seeking Justice

Welcome to ELA- Grade 8

We are going to explore a timeless question: are human beings fundamentally good or evil?

Through a close study of fiction, non-fiction, primary and secondary sources, we will consider how access to power influences human behavior, and how everyday people respond in the face of unjust leadership, violent oppression, and cruelty.

We will look at some of the darkest events of the 20th century, and contemplate your power as young people who will inherit the world to create a better future for all.
