English 6 Honors
Instructor: Mr. Gray   
♦English 6 is a comprehensive class which develops the students reading ability, writing ability, as well as speaking and listening. Students need to pay close attention in order to comprehend all of the topics discussed. When reading as whole class, students need to be focused and reading silently in their head. When they are called upon to read aloud, they need to use a loud speaking voice and enunciate properly. They need to follow directions and use neat writing.á
♦With Common Core, students are being asked to explain their answers in great detail and provide supporting evidence to back up their answer.
♦Nightly HW: students are required to read at least 20 minutes each weekday (Mon-Fri).
