In our English Language Arts program, younger groups will focus on phonics, reading, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, spelling, public speaking, and composition while upper elementary and middle school students will focus on literary comprehension and analysis, grammar, vocabulary, spelling, public speaking, and composition.  All students will read from fiction works of the African diaspora (stories, novels, folktales), non-fiction works of the African diaspora (essays, narratives, speeches), and multi-cultural fiction and non-fiction works of the world.  Our goal in ELA is to introduce students to great literary texts while cultivating them into all-star readers, writers, and thinkers.
