Sixth-grade students are expected to write personal narratives, responses to literature, informational and procedural texts, persuasive essays and stories about real or fictional events. To improve writing skills for sixth-graders, teach them the five-step writing process, organizational skills for different writing purposes and reinforce good writing conventions.
