College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards
This year in sixth grade students will understand and be able to do the following:
In the area of reading, students will determine the key ideas and details, including the ability to determine what the text says explicitly and to make inferences. They will be able to summarize and analyze the development of the themes of the text as well as how and why individuals, events and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text. They will understand the craft and structure, how to interpret words and phrases, use of figurative language, and analyze how specific sentences, paragraphs and larger portions of text relate to each other. The students will also be able to assess how point of view shapes the content or style of a text. Students will be able to integrate their knowledge and ideas in diverse formats and media, evaluate the argument and specific claims, including the validity of the reasoning. Students will analyze how two or more texts address similar themes in order to compare the approaches two authors take. As the year goes on they will read and understand more and more complex texts and be able to work through them independently.
In the area of writing, students will write arguments to support claims using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. They will write informative texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly through effective organization and write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences using effective technique, details and sequencing. Students will produce and distribute their writing that is written with appropriate purpose and audience. They will fully develop their writing through the writing process of planning, revising, editing, rewriting or attempting a new approach. Using technology, students will produce and publish writing to interact and collaborate with others. Students will conduct short and more sustained research to demonstrate an understanding of the subject. They will gather information from multiple sources, assess the credibility and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. Students will write routinely over extended time frames and for shorter time frames to a range of tasks, purposes and audiences.
