English 6 Powers & Neall

Language Arts is the study of self-expression through written and spoken work.  Year long activities include: journal response writing, spelling, vocabulary development, interpretation of literature, discussion and writings, grammar, presentation skills and editing skills. In addition there are writing projects designed to tie in with each history unit to help students synthesize the material better while learning different writing styles.  Literature is the reading and analysis of novels. The entire class as a whole will read FIVE books this year.  Each novel closely relates to the ancient cultures we study in history.  Silent reading, small and large group readings, discussion, projects and tests will accompany each book.

 

Spelling

Students will take a spelling pretest every Monday in class.  They will bring home their list to study and will take a spelling test every Friday.  We will start spelling on Monday, August 28th 2017.
