English Language Arts

 

The New York City Department of Education is dedicated to ensuring that all students are college- and career-ready. Teaching English Language Arts is vital to this goal, making students effective readers and writers under statewide educational standards. The Common Core Library  and EngageNY give more information on New York schools’ transition to Common Core Learning Standards, which require students to ground reading, writing, and discussion in evidence from text. The Common Core encourages teachers to use a balance of complex fiction and non-fiction texts in the classroom.
