Instruction in English (literature, composition and speech) and language arts (reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing) provides vital content for lifelong learning and problem solving in our increasingly complex technological world. English/Language Arts (ELA) instruction engages students in the essential thinking skills and processes used across subject areas.
