Transcript of Language Arts Common Core

Welcome to
Sixth Grade Northeastern Randolph Middle School.

Just a few things you can expect in sixth grade.
What do students really need to know in this competitive, 21st century, global economy?
In June 2010, the N.C. State Board of Education took a major step in setting clear, consistent academic expectations for our students by adopting the Common Core State Standards.

By sixth grade,over 50 percent of reading time and activities should focus on informational text. The rest should be reading fiction.
Some examples of other suggested Common Core exemplar texts for 6th grade reading.

Students in sixth grade will continue to expand the knowledge, skills, and understandings acquired in the fourth and fifth grade.Students will begin their first formal look at a study of the world.
Sixth grade social studies will focus on the ancient civilizations through the early middle ages.
We will begin by examining the beginning of civilizations.
We will also learn to understand and explain the effects of innovation and technology on developing civilizations.
As students advance through middle school, they transition from simple readers and stories to more difficult, content-rich materials including novels, plays, textbooks, laboratory manuals, and technical texts.
Top 10 reasons to read
