English Language Arts (ELA) is the way we communicate with each other and the world. For our students, strong communication skills are a requirement for their futures and in the digital age that means not only strong writing and speaking skills, both in person and online, but also active listening and critical thinking skills. ELA focuses on:

  • expressing ideas in a variety of media forms for different audiences and purposes
  • Revising ideas, exploring to find answers and convincing others 
  • Examining ideas, experiences and information from multiple points of view that differ from their own and 
  • Managing a variety of sources of information to develop their own opinions and impressions.
