Advanced English Classes Language Arts, Lesson Plan And Curriculum

The skating rink near The Cellar, a bar on Nanjing E. Rd. Part of the CMBRT Series 1.

For my Advanced English Class, I prepared this lesson plan and curriculum. It is to be used with the 6th grade McGraw-Hill books, the 2003 edition. This material and lesson plan is best used for advanced 4th and 5th graders who have good English. Alternatively, it can be used for grades 6 to high school, depending on their level of English.

Basically, this is the curriculum for a normal 6th grade Language Arts class, for the first 12 weeks. Each story has enough material for two weeks of teaching, about 9 hours per week. If you run out of time, you can skip the reviews and reteaching parts of the curriculum, though they are all in sequence and repeated for a reason. Starting at another story than the 1st is problematic as well, since the lessons are scaffolded.

PB = Practice Book

GPB = Grammar Practice Book

SPB = Spelling Practice Book

I’ve included all of the challenge vocabulary. The normal spelling vocabulary is located in the Teacher’s Edition for Grade 6.
