6th Grade English Language Arts  

Welcome to the 2013 - 2014 school year and your child’s final year at MLS - 6th grade!   We have many new and exciting programs happening this year:

  • 6th Grade Identity: The Sixth Grade S.E.E.K.E.R.S.

  • Project-based Learning

  • STAR Assessments (Reading & Math)

This year, in my English Language Arts class,  students will be lead through a problem-based learning (PBL) approach that challenges them to learn through engagement in a real-world problems in the active role of problem solvers and researchers. Students will be asked essential questions that pose authentic problems or significant questions that engage them and that require core subject knowledge to solve or answer. As a class we will strive to  foster a strong classroom culture where everyone feels confident and where quality and excellence in the classroom are highly valued.
