Welcome to Mrs. McCormick's 6th grade classes!
Social Studies: This year we will be studying about the cultures, economy, geography and government of Europe, Canada, Latin America and Australia.
We will use the textbook, World Cultures and Geography for some information. Most information will be in the form of powerpoint and Notebook presentations from the Georgia Performance Standards and Common Core GPS from Cherokee County and the State of Georgia. There will be a class set of books for students to use when needed.
Reading/Language Arts: This year we will be using active reading strategies to help us interpret various forms of literature and respond in writing to what we read. We will also develop individual writing styles using standard English conventions.
We will use our textbooks, Literature Language and Literacy by Prentice Hall, Writing and Grammar by Prentice Hall as well as various novels, and technology in our classrooms.
I am looking forward to a great year!
