High School English Language Arts/Reading (ELAR)
Literacy is “a tool for daily life in modern society...it is the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.” -Kofi Annan
Literacy involves a continuum of learning that encompasses all aspects of language and communication: reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking.
In our high school English courses, students will explore, interpret, communicate, and create using multimedia, multi-genre literature and informational texts. Students will engage in activities and interactions that build on their prior grade-level knowledge, develop their skills, and enable them to achieve their goals.
