English

The ELA program has two basic aims: to provide you with an understanding and appreciation of a broad range of literature and to enable you to use language to communicate effectively for a multitude of purposes. In addition to these broad aims, the ELA program specifically focuses on an integrated approach to skill and concept development in six areas – listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing.

English involves:

  • communicating effectively in various places for many different audiences and reason
  • selecting appropriate forms, structures, and technology for a variety of contexts
  • understanding, appreciating, and creating a broad range of texts (including multi-media, visual, oral, and print)
  • using technology to develop, demonstrate, and communicate your mathematical understandings
