Eighth grade is an important year in the VAPA students’ middle school career. It is not only the culmination of all of their hard work, but the time to bring together everything the students have learned, reflect on that learning, and allow that learning to help shape the person they will become. The VAPA theme of “Be a Hero” is continued in this year with a global focus. Students will explore a number of different pieces of literature, analyze them and create original works using our theme as inspiration. All of our work is firmly rooted in the California Common Core State Standards using the multiple arts strands to enrich the students learning, as well as strengthen their personal connection to the work and their learning. Our VAPA goal is not only to create life long learners, but positive contributors to our world community.
