    6th Grade Language Arts Information:

    In this course, students will be becoming proficient in reading, writing, language mechanics, reading, and listening. They will be given both formative and summative assessments, and will be scored on knowledge and skills using a rubric scale of 2.75-5, as required by law.  In some cases, a simple point-based grade may be given for some assignments. Grades will be weighted in which 70% of a student's grade is based on summative assessments, and 30% is based on participation, practice, and overall responsibility.           

     

     

    Information about course material, new grading policies, and academic expectations is included in the syllabus that students and parents will receive during the first days of school.  This is for reference only.  6th Grade Language Arts
