Stack of books at the library The English language arts are central to all learning.  Through integrated reading, writing, and speaking instruction, students actively construct meaning.  As they study literature, both modern and from long ago, written by people from many racial, ethnic, and cultural groups, students grow in their understanding of their own world and the worlds of others.  The study of the writing process focuses on content, organization, fluency, word choice, and conventions, so that students may find their own voices.
