Prentice, Dan (English: Writing 6)

Hello 6th grade community,

We are now getting set up for parent-teacher conferences. Parents should only sign up for a conference with their child’s Homeroom/1st hour teacher. We can discuss any issues in any class. The 6th grade is a close team, so we can answer any questions and address any concerns you may have in all your child’s classes. We will be using a reflection form to guide the conference. I am assigning this form through your child’s Google Classroom. It will be named “Reflection Form,” and should be at or near the top of the stream.

All conferences will be through Zoom. Here is the link to sign up on Calendly.

Google Classroom

We will use Google Classroom at times to turn in work and access lessons. This will be a nice tool to use when we have kids absent for any reason. Google Classroom can help your child stay connected to class through the internet. Below are the classroom codes if your child needs to sign in to my class. This has been completed for almost everyone at this point.

Course List



Sixth Grade Writing is designed to guide the students through the writing process while supporting coursework from other classes. I will work closely with all the other core class teachers to tailor my writing assignments to their curriculum. We will focus on punctuation, grammar, and formatting while we write expository, argumentative, and narrative text. Expository writing is writing that informs or explains a subject to the reader. Argumentative text argues a position using details and quotes as support. Narrative writing tells stories.
