This file contains the 6th grade Common Core writing standards “unpacked” in student friendly language using I can statements.
This file can help you as a teacher organize your standards by topic and ensure that every skill is covered.
You will find that some standards cover many topics, therefore in the document they are broken down into categories with specific I can statements aligned to the standard in student friendly language. In order to teach our children effectively, we must build off of prior knowledge. These standards “unpacked” start with the basic I can recall topics needed to accomplish a standard, and then they build upon one another to reach the desired outcome. I use these pages as a guide for myself as a teacher, and I also distribute them to my students.
I can assure you, that you will use this document everyday in your classroom as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher using writing. The student friendly I can statements allow teachers to plan lessons aligned to to Common Core standards, allows students to understand exactly what their goals are, allows students to reflect on their own understanding on specific learning objectives, and most importantly as a teacher, allows you the ability to have a firm grasp of your students understanding of standards.
I hope that you enjoy the layout and usefulness of this document for the success of your students in your classroom!
