6th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

Our sixth-grade course provides guidance and practice to help students move beyond grade level in reading, writing, and critical thinking. Through integrated grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing lessons, students build the skills they need to craft their own insightful interpretations of a text and to convey their ideas clearly and elegantly in writing. In-class lessons are structured to guide students through increasingly sophisticated selections from a variety of fiction and non-fiction sources. Along the way, students practice emulating the authors they are reading to build their own writing skills, and work closely with their teachers and peers to learn the craft of literary analysis.

Reading Sources

By introducing our students to complex passages from some of the world's greatest writers, we teach students both how to understand intricately-expressed ideas as well as to convey their own insights. Below is a sample of the high-quality classic literature and primary sources from which course material is drawn:
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
  • The Yearling by Marjorie Kennan Rawlings
  • Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass
  • The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper
"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
