Welcome to sixth grade reading class!
In reading class, we seek to grow as readers, writers, and thinkers by tackling the big questions that we face as humans. Our unit essential questions for this year are as follows:
Question one: How do fictional characters and real people respond to the joys and challenges of growing up?
Question two: What do stories and informational texts teach us about the experience of being an outsider?
Question three: What are human rights and how do real people and fictional characters respond when those rights are challenged?
Question four: Why do some stories stick around?
