How does online school work for 8th graders?
All classes are taught by experienced, Wisconsin-certified teachers. Course work is assigned online, and students submit their work and take tests online. All students are provided a pace chart for each class to help them stay on track, and every student has an academic advisor to help them stay on course toward graduation. Although there are no classrooms, eAchieve offers weekly, teacher-led “eSessions” that give students the opportunity to engage in discussions and interact with other students.
8th grade Language Arts brings together all the skills acquired in previous years, with a focus on reading critically and communicating effectively in writing. Students also continue developing their vocabulary, grammar and listening skills. Learning targets include effective communication, comprehension and evaluation of fiction and nonfiction, and effective research.
8th grade Math reviews the concepts and skills covered in previous years and introduces statistics, graphing, and basic geometry concepts. Learning targets include analyzing and solving different types of equations, graphing of data, evaluating and simplifying algebraic expressions, understanding probability and its application in real life situations, and the basic concepts of geometry.
8th grade science lays the foundation for high-school level science classes by building on all the major scientific disciplines.

Learning targets include the ability to evaluate, generate and explain evidence in accordance with scientific practices and the ability to communicate through discourse and other scientific practices.
