8th grade was a fun experience for me, and to make sure that happens for future 8th graders here is some advice. 8th grade will be the last year you will have before high school. So, make the best of it. In this grade, you will be able to do many activities to ensure that. There will be many debates, a fashion show, and ELD. (Educational Leadership Development). Also, a personal tip for 8th grade is to hold on to friendships, but also make new ones.
In the 8th grade, you will have many debates, that will allow you to share your personal opinion. A tip for debates is to not let the other side get under your skin. Just follow the rules of debate and you will be fine. The fashion show was also pretty fun, you will have the opportunity to show the creative skills that u have. A tip for the fashion show is to choose wisely. Choosing people who have the same quality is not going to help with the uniqueness of the outfit. Remember to have fun during that activity, because it gives you a chance to bond. ELD was an amazing experience that I am glad to have been a part of. ELD will give you the chance to bond with students younger than you. A tip for ELD is to get to know the scholars and bond, once you know it the year will be over. Also, try to get to know your ELD mentor. They are really cool. For example, my ELD mentor, Mr.Moss, was amazing. The mentors can also be inspirational. For example, Mr.Moss inspired me to one day become a teacher, but in the professor sense like in a college. That is after I believe I have finished my duty as a Mechanical Engineer. If you get to know the ELD instructor you will figure out that they can think like you, in some ways.
The personal tip, friendships. In the grade before high school relationships are important to build with friends. Also, manage to make new friendships. Hold on to these. Try to fix them if something goes bad. Do not just give up. Losing a friendship that is so important to you hurts, it breaks your heart. Problems will arise in these categories. Also, be genuine. A strong belief I have is that friendships will help you get through the hard times. That is important.
In the long run, make sure you do ur best during your 8th-grade year. You will have many responsibilities. Take the advice and have a great 8th-grade year.
