Standards Map for 6th Grade English

Each 6th grade Fishtank ELA unit deepens student mastery of a set of grade-level standards. These are split into core standards (standards especially important for understanding the core text and knowledge of the unit) and spiral standards (standards that students repeatedly use as they engage with, discuss, or write about a text). To learn more about how student mastery of the standards develops based on the focus areas of each 6th grade unit, read our 6th Grade English Course Overview.
