In sixth grade, students have two ELA classes: Reading and Writing. In Writing class, students will learn about the writing process as they explore different types of writing including narrative, expository, persuasive, descriptive and creative. During a poetry unit, students will develop an appreciation for poetry and the use of figurative language. Weekly vocabulary and grammar lessons are also part of the writing curriculum.Students will have regular homework, so please check your child’s agenda daily as a primary means of communication. In English, students will be graded on essays and projects; in-class work, such as quizzes, worksheets and activities; vocabulary pages and quizzes; as well as organization and preparedness for class (having necessary materials, homework, etc).Check out the Important Announcements tab for updates.
