COURSE OVERVIEW English 6 offers a comprehensive study of the English language through reading, writing, speaking and listening. Each of the four components is stressed on a daily basis.

6 WRITING Students will write on a daily basis. Over the course of the year, we will be focusing on: Writing Process: pre-writing, drafting, editing, conferencing, revising, proofing, and publishing Writing Structure: sentences, paragraphs, compositions Writing Forms: descriptive, narrative, formal/informal writing, journal writing Grammar: connected to student writing, mini-lessons from resource texts Vocabulary/spelling: connected to reading selections and student writing Researching Skills: locating information, summarizing

7 SPEAKING/LISTENING Students will practice their speaking and listening skills through persuasive speaking, oral discussions, oral reading, and oral presentations. Standard to be assessed throughout the year Students will listen and respond critically to oral communication. Students will deliver coherent, well-focused informal and formal oral presentations.

8 HOMEWORK You should expect to have approximately minutes of English homework everyday. These assignments will usually be grammar or vocabulary work, and/or a writing assignment.

9 Important Note: Reading independently is a habit requiring practice. Reading is not considered homework. You will need to establish a period of 20 minutes a day dedicated to reading. This year students have the option of using their own e-reader to purchase and read the books assigned in English class. If they choose to use an e-reader they must bring it to every class.

10 Communication Arts Communication Arts is a course designed to help students enhance their communication skills. Students will: Learn writing and editing techniques Practice writing mechanics Expand vocabulary Improve word processing skills Work on oral communication skills

Students should make good use of supplies, cleaning up and returning unused materials to their specific location before leaving the room. Some unusual materials might be required. Each student will receive a folder at the beginning of the school year, which should be returned in good state at the end of the year. We would appreciate your help in bringing in old newspapers and magazines at any time.

56 PARENT INVOLVEMENT Attending art exhibitions, performances of educational and professional theatre companies, and concerts during the year allows students to explore cultural opportunities, expand their knowledge of the arts, and support their personal growth.
