This is an integrated 6th grade pacing guide (scope/sequence) aligned to California state standards for ELA, Social Studies, and Science. This will be helpful for those of you teaching 6th grade in a multiple subjects setting, or for those collaborating with teachers of other disciplines to enhance students' learning experience.
The thematic units are designed to create memorable, motivating social studies and science content that relates to the reading and writing done in ELA.
The pacing guide is detailed by week. Each week includes a social studies or science theme, content vocabulary, reading comprehension, literary response/analysis, writing, and a grammar focus.
Standards are referenced in each category for each week. Most weeks include a frontload of key literary response/analysis concepts to come during ELD.
A text is referenced most weeks that can be used to support the week's standard. Excerpts may be used when the text is too lengthy for the allotted time period.
