Grade 6 ELA Curriculum

Building students’ literacy skills as they develop knowledge about the world.

247 Instructional Days (247 Hours)


Taken as a whole, these modules are designed to give teachers concrete strategies to address the “instructional shifts” required by the CCSS.

Structure of a Module

Each module provides eight weeks of instruction, broken into three shorter units. Each module includes seven assessment:   

  • Six unit-level assessments that almost always are on-demand: students’ independent work on a reading, writing, speaking, or listening task.
  • One final performance task that is a more supported project, often involving research.

The Lesson Plans are organized within each Module.
