Welcome to Mrs. Mukerjee's 6th Grade CORE Webpage!
In 6th grade CORE, we cover content that is exciting and challenging!
6th Grade English emphasizes critical reading of various literary selections and analysis through discussion, essays, projects, and speeches. Students will examine the links among culture, history, and literature. We will also focus on grammar, language mechanics, vocabulary and writing.
In Social studies, we study the people and events that ushered in the dawn of the major Western and non-Western ancient civilizations. Geography is of special significance in the development of the human story. Students develop higher levels of critical thinking by considering why civilizations developed where and when they did, why they became dominant, and why they declined. Students analyze the interactions among the various cultures, emphasizing their enduring contributions and the link, despite time, between the contemporary and ancient worlds.
