“If taught effectively, the Common Core State Standards will help students master the skills they need to be successful in college or a meaningful career,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Resources like this sixth grade Common Core ELA lesson plan show how the Standards build towards real work and education skills such as collaboration, strategically using digital media and visual displays and use data to express information.”
The sixth grade Common Core ELA lesson plan aligns to standards CCRA.W.6 and CCRA.SL.5. The lesson plan outlines an activity for students to write an original story and present it using an app that makes shadow puppets to help them incorporate digital technology.
