Sixth grade marks the transition to middle school and, for many students, the transition to early adolescence. The sixth-grade classroom is a place where problem-solving and abstract thinking skills can flourish as teachers devise creative ways to integrate language arts with effective content-area instruction. This book walks the reader through everyday life in a successful sixth-grade language arts/social studies classroom and provides foundational knowledge and hands-on strategies for working with diverse learners.
