Reading and Literature Sixth Grade

    Literature at this level should take advantage of a new reality within the students.  They are now able to reason over what they read and see the story behind the lines, as you will.  Average book length for students at this level should be around a hundred pages.  Vocabulary comprehension is also very high.
