    Participate in discussions, debate with an answer you think "incorrect", raise you hand in case your teacher forgot soemthing you already know.

    Depending on where you are, 6th grade can be elementary or middle school. If possible, ask (or have a parent ask) about the option of going into a higher level class for certain subjects. For example, I teach third grade, but will send a student to fourth grade if they excel in math to have that additional challenge and learning opportunity. I have had second grade students come into my room for reading when they have gone above and beyond their grade level.
    If that is not an option in your situation, ask about being provided more challenging work in those subject areas that you are very good with. It can be difficult when working with high achieving students to keep them involved and motivated. If your teacher has groups, perhaps you can be the facilitator of the highest group, or a parent volunteer can come in to work with those students who would benefit from higher level instruction.
    There are a variety of ways to work it out, just takes some creative thinking on the part of the teacher and school administration... no reason why you can't offer some suggestions.

    In middle school they usually don't have as many advanced classes as 8th grade and above. As you approach high school you will be able to take the classes you need and want as long as you are being successful in your work. Don't worry about it. You will get there it just takes patience.
