Middle School Language Arts

Ms. McCutchen's 6th Grade Language Arts class is working on their first unit,  “Changes Over Time: Analyzing Character and Theme Development.” Students are reading short story selections that are culturally diverse and show how individuals change as a result of various experiences and events. Throughout the study of texts, students will determine how the elements of narration and text structure contribute to the advancement of theme, setting, character, and plot development. The 6th graders are also reading "Esperanza Rising" as their class novel for Marking Period 1.
