From The Desk Of Ms. F. Jackson...
Welcome To 6th Grade English Language Arts!!!
We’ve got a new addition to the Jones Valley Dragons Family, YOU!!!
I am honored and excited about all the wonderful ideas and skills I will be teaching you this year. Hopefully, by the completion of the year I will have a group of inquisitive and aware young ELA scholars ready to challenge difficult situations head on while adding to our society in a positive way.
My class content is aligned with the Alabama State Department of ELA Education Course of Study. This year, we will focus on the mechanics of writing, such as grammar, punctuation, and spelling. We will also cover reading comprehension and literary analysis, as well as other key concepts and details you will need to become a successful communicator. I strongly believe that my students’ impact on the future is determined by their ability to analyze and master the concepts I introduce to them. It is my duty as their teacher to eliminate fear, stereotypes, and stigmas, by engaging students in activities that will give them a greater appreciation of English, Language, and Literature.
As a part of my family, you have full access to the wonderful resources and activities my webpage provides! Please check back here often, as I will also post important information and announcements.

Learn what you must learn
Do what you can do
And tomorrow your nation
Will be what you want it to be"
