6th grade GRC

What to expect in GRC in middle school.

6 th grade grc

  • GRC is taught through the English/Language Arts class in middle school. You will be learning the exact same stuff that all other 6th graders have to learn, but we just learn the content in different ways- through critical thinking strategies, Six Thinking Hats, Socratic Circles, and more. We also address the social and emotional needs of gifted kids.

Social and Emotional Issues are dealt with through bibliotherapy, cinematherapy, and through reading the Gifted Kids Survival Guide.

Read read read

  • Each student will be reading approximately 15 novels this year. I expect students to have a book to read with them at all times. They may also check out a book from my personal library. Electronic readers like Nooks or Kindles may be used in class.

  • Historical Fiction PRODUCT Guidelines

  • 100 points

  • You will be responsible for researching the “historical” aspect of your historical fiction novel. Try to find first-hand accounts. First-hand accounts are documents from someone who actually went through that time period or event. Find a memoir, a newspaper article, a non-fiction book, or something like that. We went to learn more about the historical event or time period in which your book took place.

  • You will need to create a poster or tri-fold poster filled with pictures and information about your historical event/time period. You will need to research MOST of this information at home as well as print off pictures at home. We will use netbooks in class to research, but we will not have access to computers with printers. Remember, the library is open every day before school and printing is allowed there. Black and white copies are .10 and color copies are .25. You can illustrate your own pictures as well.

  • ____________________________________ _______________________________
