English Language Arts (ELA)
In an ever-changing technological world that has altered the landscape of communication, literacy skills are needed now more than ever. Television, movies, and the Internet are an important part of our lives, at times replacing the traditional written text. DoDEA is at the forefront of teaching the necessary skills to prepare students for this new world.
DoDEA is committed to advancing literacy skills for all learners. The English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum provides students rich, rigorous programs that address literacy skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening, as well as 21st-century skills in research, technology, and media. This standards-based curriculum allows students to explore the world around them through integrated reading and writing programs.
DoDEA provides students and teachers with up-to-date materials and the most current, research-based teaching practices in literacy instruction. To meet all students' learning needs, teachers differentiate instruction and access additional resources as necessary. Students are encouraged to read a wide range of literature and to write for a variety of audiences and purposes, preparing them to participate fully in a global community.
