Standards for the English Language Arts
International Reading Association and National Council of Teachers of English
More than a set of guidelines, this book describes the literacy skills and abilities that our students must possess to thrive in school and later in life. Standards for the English Language Arts presents a shared view of literacy education from the reading and English language arts communities — one that encompasses the use of print, oral language, visual language, and the six interrelated language arts of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visually representing.
Designed to complement other national, state, and local standards efforts, this document makes an indispensable contribution to ongoing discussion about English language arts classroom activities and curricula.
