English Language Arts

English language arts are integrative, interactive ways of communication that develop through reading, speaking, listening, and viewing. They are the means through which one is able to receive information, think logically and creatively, express ideas, understand and participate meaningfully in spoken, written, and non-verbal communications, formulate and answer questions, and search for, organize, evaluate, and apply information. As such, the goal of the Rahway English language arts program is to provide students with rich, rigorous learning experiences that address literacy skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as 21st-century skills in research, technology, and media. The standards-based curriculum allows students to explore the world around them through integrated reading and writing programs. Students are encouraged to read a wide range of texts and to write for a variety of audiences. Through the study of English language arts, all students will develop the skills necessary to carry them into adulthood as contributing members of the 21st-century society: critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity.
