My goal for 6th grade literature is to have students use the active reading skills when reading fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Through the use of reading strategies, students will become more fluent readers and develop a greater degree of comprehension. Students will analyze reading selections using literary elements in a variety of genres. This course will incorporate vocabulary development and PSSA preparation.
