• Welcome to sixth grade language arts.  My name is Miss Koeppen, and I am a teacher on the Silver Team.  This year we will explore persuasive, compare/contrast, descriptive narrative, and expository writing.  Students will read Where the Red Fern Grows, Crispin, and Out of the Dust.  Throughout the school year, students will also work on parts of speech, grammar, and Greek and Latin roots.
