6th Grade Language Arts & Social Studies

Welcome to Hoover Middle School's 6th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies course pages!

Dr. Matthews on the first day of school, 2013
This year, all San Jose Unified teachers will be implementing the new Common Core Standards that will officially be adopted in the 2014-2015 school year.  After a year and a half of hard work in creating curriculum, we are ready to begin our implementation!  These rigorous academic standards will challenge our students within the areas of reading both informational and fictional selections, writing, speaking and listening.  Teachers will use Explicit Direct Instructional strategies to assist students in using critical analytical thinking strategies to gain a deeper depth of knowledge with this new curriculum.  More information on Common Core standards as well as the standards themselves can be found at:  http://www.corestandards.org/.  (Thank you Ms. Hananouchi for this excellent description!)
