Ignitia 6th Grade Language Arts communicates the importance of proper language use and the value of reading with technology based lessons built to enrich the learning experience for your students. Throughout the course, students will be introduced to a number of literary forms including fiction and non-fiction, news and propaganda, poetry and advertising. Reading, grammar, vocabulary, and literature are integrated to round out the subject matter, meeting the rigorous requirements expected by students and their parents. As a part of a complete learning management system, Ignitia 6th Grade Language Arts is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Ignitia courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

Literacy has a new meaning in the digital age. As important as learning the language, students must be able to communicate digitally through the use of technological devices. In this course, students are exposed to lessons delivered by electronic means, use the computer and the Internet (optional) to complete course requirements, and examine the media and its presence in God's universe. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia 6th Grade Language Arts enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.
