English Languages Arts & Reading

Beliefs

English Language Arts curriculum provides students with the foundation to become literate graduates who are critical thinkers, global citizens, and innovative problem solvers.

Guiding Principles

We believe that...

  • EVERY teacher fosters literacy by incorporating reading, writing, speaking, and listening within your discipline.
  • Developing literacy-rich content area instruction supports students’ growth in knowledge and literacy practices.
  • The gradual release of responsibility holds students accountable for their learning as they transfer their knowledge across disciplines.
  • Families and community engagement are essential to building a culture of literacy that transcends school walls and promotes lifelong learning.
  • The classroom environment promotes a culture of literacy that is emphasized, supported, observable, and expected.
  • Professional staff receive high-quality professional learning and access to support systems that promote personal growth in literacy instruction.
  • Choice fuels engagement and that self-selection of text is fundamental to literacy growth.
