Secondary English

A comprehensive language arts program consists of a variety of reading, writing, listening, and speaking components that foster the integration of communication, research skills, and teamwork. These components include a variety of literacy activities that progress from teacher directed, to guided practice, to independent learning and are woven into the classroom setting to create an environment that leads students to become independent readers, writers, and thinkers. Our classrooms should be "spaces where young people develop and cultivate agency, love, joy, community, and justice" (Green, NCTE).

Check it out! Did we polish our writing through revision and editing? Did we write in response to something we read? Did we learn new vocabulary? Did we read independently?

Congratulations, English Teachers!
