What to Expect in 6th Grade
In the 6th grade, students will begin to become independent learners using research skills, questioning, and become more than one-step problem solvers. Teacher support in and out of class is available to help students transition from elementary to middle school skills. Some group work is required and 2 - 14 day projects will occur throughout the year. Unfinished class work becomes homework. Some special homework may be throughout the year. Teacher/parent/ student communication is available and encouraged through e-mail, phone, and letter and by appointment (parent conferences).
