English/Language Arts

The English Language Arts Program

The ELA Curriculum provides students with a rigorous academic experience throughout their four years of high school. The curriculum units are carefully designed to ensure skill practice in reading, writing, researching and listening and speaking and to provide rigorous learning experiences aligned to the CT Core Standards. Each unit of study builds on the previous one to ensure that students have acquired the prerequisite skills to move onto the next level of learning. Likewise, each grade level curriculum is designed in light of the previous year’s curriculum to ensure student readiness for the next grade level. The CTHSS English Language Arts Curriculum also supports the development of skills recommended by the 21st Century Learning Standards and Career Technical Education (CTE) Career Ready Practices.
