Information for ELA Class

Posted: September 5, 2017

Hello and welcome to 6th Grade ELA.  A goal of ours for this is year is to learn to analyze literature of all sorts and to understand how these works relate to us and our modern world; for this reason we will be reading a variety of texts.  This year we will also strive to become better writers in preparation for high school and college.  This is going to be a difficult but fun class, and as long as students complete their assignments and stay on task, students will have no problem being successful.
