Welcome to 8th Grade ELA!

About Me

My name is Meredith Daly, and I’m pleased to be your child’s English Language Arts (ELA) teacher this year! I love reading and writing, and I hope to foster a love of reading and writing in my students. This is my eleventh year of teaching, and my second year at Paseo Pointe. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Michigan-Flint. I am certified as Highly Qualified in the area of English Language Arts.

I live in Phoenix with my husband, four cats, a dog, and a lot of books.

About ELA

ELA includes standards for Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening, and Conventions (Grammar). To cover these objectives, students will be reading stories, articles, essays, novels, and a variety of other texts. Students will work independently, in pairs, and in collaborative teams to master their learning objectives. Students will also be engaging in a variety of speaking opportunities, including debates, discussions, speeches and presentations.
