Language Arts 6
Language Arts 6 enables students to master previously learned skills in more complex reading selections and written work. Students learn strategies to respond to different types of literature. The literature selections focus on a deeper understanding of issues regarding race, gender, and culture. Literature is studied from a Christian perspective and related to Biblical principles. Students make analysis and understand the author’s point of view and choice of language.
Throughout the year, emphasis is on writing, and students become familiar with the writing process from note taking and drafting to editing, proofreading, and final copy. Students adhere to conventions of accepted English. Studying roots, prefixes, and suffixes, students better comprehend vocabulary. Memorizing spelling rules, students understand how words are spelled. Students write in journals and keep track of outside reading on a weekly basis.
