In the sixth grade, the Common Core Standards stress the importance of understanding the conventions of standard English (e.g. grammar usage when writing and speaking), the knowledge of the language (e.g. tone and style), vocabulary retention and strategies for learning new words and understanding figurative language and nuances in various text genres. Ideally, students are empowered with strategies to break reading texts down for a more critical and in-depth understanding. In the iTooch 6th Grade Language Arts app, critical reading and composition skills are introduced through 50 chapters and over 1,500 interactive exercises that test the user’s knowledge. The Communication theme is an added bonus and introduces students to key concepts such as Sequencing Ideas, Formal vs. Informal Language, Test Taking and Study Skills and how to become a good researcher. Therefore this app not only covers the Common Core Standards but it also aids advancement into the upper junior high grades.
