Shift Happens. Shift 6 of the New York State C.C.L.S. deals with academic vocabulary. To this end, Carol has sent the 6th grade teachers a list of 358 grade-appropriate words compiled by literacy expert, Jim Burke. I have separated the words by academic area and posted them on the right side of blog. Please click on the link to find the words that pertain to your subject area. You can also view the video about Shift 6 below.
