Language arts is a fundamental subject taught in grades K-12. Major areas of the language arts curriculum are reading, listening, speaking, writing, spelling, handwriting, and vocabulary. Since there is a distinct body of knowledge for components of language arts, time is designated specifically for this instruction.
To help students make connections between what they read, write, speak, listen, and view, language arts instruction may also be integrated within the discipline or with other disciplines.
Literacy is a gateway skill. Through authentic, thought-provoking classroom experiences, our students are prepared for the communication demands of life.
