The English Language Arts Curriculum is designed to introduce students to core concepts that are further developed and expanded as students progress through each grade level. This process allows students to develop the skills necessary to:
1) comprehend and interpret texts, including written as well as audio and visual texts;
2) compose a variety of types of texts, including those critical to the workplace;
3) effectively communicate and interact with others in group situations; and
4) communicate information through different modes of presentation.
The English Language Arts curriculum integrates the processes of reading, writing, and listening/speaking/viewing in order to help students communicate and interpret information in a variety of modes.
