Mr. Barry Leonard

 Welcome to Mr. Leonard's Sixth Grade ELA!

 *Book Project for 2nd Marking Period is due January 7*

You can find everything you need to know about the class right here. Don't hesitate to contact me with questions! Be sure to check out the "Useful Links" tab to the left for link the Community Web Portal, our class page on Schoology, and to check out the WASD 6th grade curriculum. 


About the Class:

The class will be taught using a mix of class novels, literature circle books, current events articles, and items released from the state. The five novels we will read as a class are:

1. Soldier's Heart
2. The Cay
3. City of Ember
4. Number the Stars
5. Wringer 

We will also be doing a lot of grammar and writing. Students will create several writing pieces, including writing their own fractured fairy tales. 

Students will be required to submit 2 reading summaries each Friday. These can be written and turned in or turned in to me on a Google Doc. Summaries need to be at least four sentences and need to be done on a free choice book. 

Free Choice Book Projects
In marking periods 2, 3, and 4, students will be required to complete a book project on a book of their choosing. The due date for the projects will always be roughly a week before the end of the marking period. The majority of the work on the projects will need to be done at home. 

Scoring rubrics and descriptions of the projects can be found under the tab on the left.
