Mrs. Tierney's 6th grade ELA Class

Accomplishment

  April Update

ELA core classes are beginning Collection 5 "Decisions that Matter". The selections in this collection explore the difficulties in making important decisions by looking at critical choices that people, both famous and ordinary, have had to make. Students will be comparing a memoir and biography of Colin Powell, reading an autobiography of Wilma Mankiller and analyzing poetry by Robert Frost and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

ELA extension classes will continue reading the Lois Lowry novel "The Giver" about a fictional dystopian society. Reading of the novel will supplemented with writing and activities comparing utopia and dystopia and making connections between Jonas' society and real world societies.

My after school day is Thursday. Feel free to contact me at ntierney@pittsfield.net with any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
