[6th grade Foundations

Foundations is a class that is intended to teach students skills and techniques that will help them to be successful in middle school and in life beyond. Two major ideas that this class is designed around are the Habits of Mind link here and the Growth Mindset. link here

Both describe the belief that it is effort and hard work that develops success.

Some of the topics we will learn about are:

  • Study Strategies and Organization

  • Public speaking and communication

  • Research methods

  • Digital Citizenship 

  • Leadership in school and community 

  • Career Exploration

  • Current Events

The best forms of communication besides email or a phone call would be to check out my website and to subscribe to Google Classroom Parent/Guardian subscription emails.
