Pillar Spotlight #10: SMART in action during CMA's 6th grade ELA class!
"In 6th grade English we are writing narrative stories. Narratives are my favorite because they allow students to unleash their imagination while they are learning structures and elements of an essay. In this particular essay they are writing about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. We got to explore the biomes of the mountain and learned about my own personal experience of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Being able to integrate other subject areas into mine, is my favorite part of teaching English. It is a joy to see an extra layer of excitement about their narrative because they can talk to someone that completed the journey. Narrative writing is my favorite genre, and it's amazing being able to share it with my students."
