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
"AoPS Academy has provided a wonderful opportunity for my children to advance and hone their knowledge and skills in mathematics.  My children have attended for a few years now, and they love it. They always look forward to attending class. I truly admire the hard work and dedication of all of the staff towards making AoPS Academy a center of excellence for math and language arts.  Both of my sons, one in high school and one in middle school, are ahead of their schoolmates in their math classes.  Not only that, they have both developed a love for this subject aided by the exposure they have received at AoPS Academy. They enjoy the interactive method of teaching, and look forward to their classes. The courses offered at AoPS Academy keep them engaged and challenged. The focus on high achieving students, along with their selective admissions standards, helps to maintain high standards. I have many business associates and friends around the United States, and have told them about AoPS Academy. They are so envious that we have such a wonderful opportunity for such rigorous instruction with the Art of Problem Solving world class curriculum. I look forward to the day when there will be an AoPS Academy in every major city in the country."
