6th Grade English Overview

In sixth grade English/Language Arts, students focus on active engagement with text. They are required to analyze, define, identify, explain, and critique text, building on reading skills developed in the elementary years. In the area of reading, students focus on word analysis, fluency, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension, as well as literary response and analysis. Writing is emphasized through the use of writing strategies in multiple genres, in addition to  practice with written and oral language conventions. Students also work on listening and speaking strategies and applications, such as debates, Socratic seminars, panel discussions, and oral presentations.
