Sixth grade student showing her descriptive writing project

Middle school will focus on various types of writing and grammar throughout the year.

  • Grammar and Conventions: Students will develop and advance skills in spelling, punctuation, parts of speech, verb tense, and sentence types to create better writing, listening, and speaking.

  • Writing: Students will focus on the writing process, sentence structure, and types of writing; such as narrative, expository, persuasive, and descriptive while focusing on proofreading and editing skills. Students, then, apply their knowledge of conventions and appropriate use of grammar within their writing.
