Class Description

This engaging, literature based Language Arts class will use games and other fun activities to cover 6th grade level state standards for Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Grammar, and Spelling.  This semester we will be reading "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" by Chris Grabenstein.

This class will cover state standards for:

·       Reading, including fluency, vocabulary including figurative language and words with multiple meanings, use of vocabulary nuance,  & literary analysis.

·       Writing, including multi-paragraph compositions with clear topic sentence/purpose, detailed/precise verbs, nouns, & adjectives as supporting details that create a visual image in the readers' minds.

·       Writing genres to include narratives, response to literature, and persuasive essays.

·       Writing conventions of grade-appropriate sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling.

·       Listening & Speaking skills including identifying speaker's tone, mood and emotions, restating and executing multi-step oral instructions, organizing and delivering oral communications, analysis of rhetorical devices, and identification of false/misleading information in media/television.

This class is live, online, and interactive.  We will use game and other fun methods to cover the material. There are 14 class meetings. We will read along as we listen to the audiobook to help strengthen the confidence of reluctant readers.

Students will generate at least one written work sample per week which may be included in a work portfolio and/or submitted to a charter school teacher.
