Narrative for (L) Language

As they move through formal schooling, students must continually learn how to gain control over the many conventions of Standard English grammar, usage, and mechanics. They must also learn to apply these language skills to their speaking and writing opportunities in order to help them convey meaning effectively and powerfully. Language standards include the rules of standard written and spoken English as well as the use of language as a craft with many choices. 

While some of the sub-standards under the language strand are grade-level specific, it is important to realize that certain expectations of language carry over from one grade to the next, 3-12. In order to see a clear picture of the progression of language standards, open the attached image above; there you will see that students never stop learning about the enduring standards of our language. English grammar, conventions, knowledge of language and vocabulary extend across reading, writing, speaking and listening and, in fact, are inseparable from these contexts.

Calculation Method for Strands

Strands are larger groups of related standards. The Strand Grade is a calculation of all the related standards. Click on the standard name below each strand to access the learning targets and proficiency scales for each strand's related standards.

Reading Information

Narrative for (RI) Reading Information

In grade 6, the North Dakota State Standards call for students to proficiently read grade-appropriate complex informational texts while further developing the ability to cite textual evidence to support their conclusions regarding key ideas and claims. While learning about an author’s point of view, students also examine how authors use reasons to make their points and support arguments with evidence, separating unsupported assertions from those backed by evidence. Students also look at how structure and content contribute to the development of ideas. 

Reading informative texts has not lessened the focus on reading literature in the English classroom; instead, this reading strand is to be viewed as a shared responsibility with other content areas such as science and social studies. Focusing on how authors make their points and support their arguments with evidence and reasoning helps 6th grade students sharpen their ability to write and speak with more clarity and coherence in all content arenas.
