The English Language Arts curriculum provides students with opportunities to experience the power of language by dealing with a variety of texts and a full range of contexts and purposes associated with the use of language.

The development of literacy is a key focus of this curriculum. Literacy today involves being able to understand and process oral, written, electronic, and multi-media forms of communication.

This curriculum acknowledges that students learn and develop at different rates and that the time frame for literacy development will vary.
