ENGLISH & LANGUAGE ARTS
English language arts incorporates the areas of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. These areas are viewed as one unified subject in which each of the five areas supports the others and enhances thinking and learning. In addition, we believe the knowledge, skills, and strategies of language arts are integrated throughout the curriculum, enabling students to solve problems and think critically and creatively in all subject areas.
Our program encompasses both process and content—how people communicate as well as what they communicate. Process includes skills and strategies used in listening, speaking, reading, writing, and viewing. Content includes the ideas, themes, issues, problems, and conflicts found in classical and contemporary literature and other texts, such as technical manuals, periodicals, speeches, and videos. Ideas, experiences, and cultural perspectives students discover in texts help them shape their visions of the world. The insight they gain enables them to understand cultural, linguistic, and literary heritages.
