ELA

The standards define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade. They correspond to the College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchor standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language as well as in mathematics, and serve as the backbone. Grade-specific K–12 standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language translate the broad (and, for the earliest grades, seemingly distant) aims of the CCR standards into age- and attainment-appropriate terms. The standards set requirements not only for English language arts (ELA) but also for literacy in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects. 

The College and Career Readiness and grade-specific standards are necessary complements—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity - that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate.

As students advance through the grades and master the standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language, they will be able to exhibit with increasing fullness and regularity the following capacities of the literate individual. 

Students will be able to demonstrate independence, and build strong content knowledge.  They will respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline. They will comprehend as well as critique, and learn to value evidence.  Our students will use technology and digital media strategically and capably. Finally, they will come to understand other perspectives and cultures.
