Library of Congress Subject Heading

Basal reading instruction; Sixth grade (Education); Education, Elementary


It seems that most curriculum's and programs in the schools of our country are geared to the average or below average student. Each grade level has its certain skills that are to be taught using like materials. Also each student has to learn these skills in a specified amount of time. Methods and procedures seem to be about the same for each student even if the student's potential says he could do and learn a lot more. The aim of this research paper is to create or unfold some new ways to challenge the bright students in the sixth grade who are using the basal reader approach. A secondary aim will be to bring out how these creative ways will benefit the superior child in the future.
