English Language Arts Grades 5 - 8

  • Goals of The English Language Arts Program Grades 5 - 8 
    The language arts are integrative, interactive ways of communicating that develop through reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. The language arts are interdependent processes that inform and enrich each other, more often than not merging in an integrated act of learning and knowing. Learners achieve language arts literacy not by adding skills one-by-one to their repertoire, but rather by using and exploring language in its many dimensions. If students learn to read, write, speak, listen, and view critically, strategically, and creatively, and if they learn to use these arts individually and with others, they will have the literacy skills they need to discover personal and shared meaning throughout their lives.
