Reading

Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts! My name is Gina Scancella and this is my 15th year of teaching. I have been teaching in Bristol Township School District since graduating from West Chester University in 2001. I have taught all elementary grades and this is my first year of teaching 6th grade in the middle school setting. I am looking forward to teaching in Armstrong Middle School and being a part of this amazing staff and school community.


6th grade English Language Arts will include reading and analyzing fiction and nonfiction texts, including articles, short stories, poems, and novels. We will also focus on grammar skills, vocabulary, and writing.


This class runs for two periods a day. One class period will focus on analyzing texts and reading skills, and the other will focus on writing and responding to texts.


Please access the parent portal, which is on Icampus, for weekly updates on tests, homework, and classwork grades. The materials needed for class are:

       A 3 subject notebook, labeled with your child’s name and ELA

       Pocket folder

       Scissors and Glue sticks (these will be used for interactive reading notebooks)

       Colored Pencils/Crayons for editing
