Language Arts

The Language Arts curriculum is based on state standards and engages students in reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking learning experiences that build each learner’s literacy skills. Students will also be learning skills in media information literacy, technology, literacy strategies and life and organizational skills that will be applied in their core and encore courses.

Opportunities for the extension of Language Arts standards are available for all students. Our goal is to provide avenues for students to engage and demonstrate their understanding in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and critical thinking experiences at a higher level and with greater depth

Supplementary support classes are also available to improve academic reading and writing. These can include focused strategy instruction to support comprehension, vocabulary development, reading fluency, awareness of language patterns and thinking and writing in response to a text.
