Grade 6 ELA
How to use your grade-level documents:
- Cover Sheet from Regional Curriculum Document--The primary use of this document is to help determine the number and complexity of texts selected throughout the year for each module. It also establishes the quantity and text types for writing that students should be doing in each module.
- Regional Curriculum Map--This document takes what is organized in the Regional Curriculum Document and establishes a planning tool for district-level curriculum writing. For each module, the map lists a description, enduring understandings, critical content, and skills. The map has space for district-level curriculum writing teams to input texts to be used, potential writing tasks to assign, and three units of instruction that would fall within each module. Sample lessons/units are included for each module as well to help districts in their curriculum writing and unit-alignment. The Regional Curriculum Map is the tool teachers can use when planning or developing instructional units for each module.
- Modules 1-6--These are the six modules that make up the Regional Curriculum Document. These documents should be used in conjunction with the Regional Curriculum Map to write district-level curriculum.
- Additional Resources--The links provided in this document show curricular materials found elsewhere that may fit into the module. They are meant to be used as a resource as teachers work on their own district units of instruction.
