Greetings PTMS Parents and Students,

Welcome to Mrs. Mitchell's Sixth Grade Language Arts Class. It is going to be an AWESOME school year filled with lots of engaging,  fun, and exciting learning experiences virtually.  Parents, I know your child's academic success is important to you, and starting school virtual may not be ideal, but together we will make this a successful school year for our students. Please know that I am committed to your student's success and will encourage them to pursue excellence throughout this course as well as in their future endeavors. 

Class Objectives:

In sixth grade, students continue to build upon skills previously taught in earlier grades.  There is a continued emphasis on reading comprehension by comparing fiction and nonfiction texts. In fiction texts, students will identify elements of narrative structure including identifying theme and analyzing figurative language.  In sixth grade, there is an increased emphasis on nonfiction reading by creating objective summaries and drawing inferences using textual evidence. The student will begin the study of word origins and continue vocabulary development. 

The student will also plan, draft, revise, and edit writing in a variety of forms with an emphasis on narrative and reflective writing. Students will continue to deliver multi-modal presentations individually and in collaborative groups. Students will also interpret information presented in diverse media formats. The student will find, evaluate, and select appropriate resources for a research product and cite both primary and secondary sources. As in earlier grades, the meaning and consequences of plagiarism will be stressed.
