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 is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
