Grade 6 Reading - First Edition

Sunrise Edition

Sixth graders need examples of courageous men and women to follow. The reader Calls to Courage provides such examples: George Washington Carver, who coaxed poor Alabama soil into production; young Jakob, who discovered the meaning of the word responsibility; Judith, who found that maturity doesn’t come in the mail; Jack, the slave who found the most important thing in the world and suffered so others could have it too.

Along with character-building themes of contentment, courage, and commitment, the accompanying LightUnits help students understand and think deeply about what they read. They expand their reading comprehension and evaluation skills and apply important lessons to their own lives. Two or three lessons a week cover a year’s work.

An optional Teacher’s Guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.
