Ms. Amy Corrigan
Hello! My name is Ms. Amy Corrigan, and this year I will be teaching Writing Workshop in 6th-grade. I am happy to be starting my 8th year (2020-2021) at Global Arts Plus-Upper and my 22nd year in education!
Here is a link to the Writer's Workshop syllabus. This year we will write to tell stories (narrative writing), inform or teach others (expository writing), and share our opinions (argument writing). We will explore our sense of self (identity), sense of purpose (truth), sense of power (voice), & sense of imagination (creativity). Stay up-to-date with grades, daily activities, homework assignments, and feedback through Schoology.
This photo was taken during the 2019 6th-grade artist residency with Minneapolis photographer Wing Young Huie.
For more information about the 6th-grade team of teachers, please take a look at this welcome letter and/or video.
Feel free to contact me by e-mail with any questions. Let's have a great year together! :) Peace, Ms. Amy Corrigan
PHOTO GALLERY: During Q2/Q3, students researched one of two historical events: the Greensboro Sit-ins and the Stonewall Uprising. They asked questions, read and took notes from 2+ sources, and synthesized and paraphrased their learning. Finally, they created ONE-PAGERS to engage and inform their readers about these important events. Here are some of the 6th-graders' ONE-PAGERS in a photo gallery.
