Intro to ACT (8th Grade) and Computer Literacy (6th and 7th Grades)

Welcome to Our Class Page!


Into to ACT

Curriculum for 8th grade will consist of introducing the ACT to our students while exploring career options, high school pathways, and high school expectations in order to maintain the best GPA possible. Further, students will discover the importance of a competitive ACT score that will not only allow them to attend a college of their choice, but will help them earn a college scholarship. We hope to instill in them the idea that higher education is attainable for all students in Tennessee, and we hope to encourage each student to begin their high school years "strong" and maintain that effort throughout their four years.


Computer Literacy

Curriculum for 6th and 7th grade students will include learning Word and PowerPoint. In addition, students will learn how to utilize their email account in a professional manner while gaining awareness of their digital footprint and how to keep it "clean" and respectful. The students will also learn how to research online while utilizing programs/apps that allow them to present findings or study facts for future assessments. Students will also explore online safety and become aware of potential harmful situations.
