6th grade writing
Welcome to the 6th grade writing. We will be exploring many different genres of writing. The students will be writing expository, informational, and personal narratives. We will also read several passages of text on a particular subject such as the treatment of killer whales in captivity using these passages as we write our essays, we will cite evidence from the texts to support our claims. The students will also work on various sentence types to enhance their writing. We will work on complex, compound, and compound/complex sentences.
