Instructional Approach:  Building Knowledge and academic vocabulary through engagement with a large volume of reading (complex texts, leveled content based text, and interest based independent reading) to write and speak to and from sources.
    The English Language Arts Department will work to increase student acquisition of content, fluency, and vocabulary and the ability to write for a variety of purposes and audiences; thereby preparing students to meet and or exceed the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in route to being college and career ready.
    Students will receive instruction via the implementation of the literacy block:K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Teachers will receive support via the coaching cycle.
