English and Language Arts teachers of grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12 share a common goal: to create learning environments of shared inquiry that allow each student to discover and use his or her strengths to express confidently and read passionately.
From the foundational levels of emerging literacy and phonemic awareness, to the discoveries of spoken and written language's beauty, to mastery over rhetoric, close reading, and one's own voice, our curriculum is a continuum by deisgn. Students become familiar with books, language, and precision, and as they draft ideas aloud, they become familiar with the grammar of deep discussion.
Lessons, collaborative activities, writing, reading selections, and assessments are thoughtfully designed at each level of the curriculum to provide age-appropriate material that consistently challenges, piques a variety of interest, and stimulates self-awareness and empathy. Students are guided to discoveries of cultural awareness and acceptance, through diverse voices that engender discoveries of one's own voice and connections to the world.
