Middle School English Language Arts 6B

This is the second course in a two-course sequence. English 6B is designed with the themes of resilience, self-discovery, empathy and confidence in mind. Students will read nonfiction stories about famous and accomplished people who overcame obstacles and failures on the road to success while learning to analyze nonfiction texts. Then, they will reflect on their own experiences with failure and perseverance and create nonfiction narratives based on their experiences. Next, students will explore themes of confidence and fitting in through the graphic novel New Kid by Jerry Craft. The final project in the course is to use the writing process and technology tools to create a superhero story in comic book format.
