Course Outlines
and Descriptions

 

English

The ELA program has two basic aims: to provide you with an understanding and appreciation of a broad range of literature and to enable you to use language to communicate effectively for a multitude of purposes. In addition to these broad aims, the ELA program specifically focuses on an integrated approach to skill and concept development in six areas listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing.

English involves:
  • communicating effectively in various places for many different audiences and reason
  • selecting appropriate forms, structures, and technology for a variety of contexts
  • understanding, appreciating, and creating a broad range of texts (including multi-media, visual, oral, and print)
  • using technology to develop, demonstrate, and communicate your mathematical understandings
