Primary through Junior Level Language Arts
Armenian Sisters Academy utilizes the PA Common Core Standards in Language Arts. The curriculum is taught to students two or three periods a day but its components (writing, reading, listening, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary) are incorporated into all other subject areas across the curriculum.
ILA’s nature, as parts of speech, usage, and grammar rules can be found in any subject and text and is expected to be used in any form of writing. Vocabulary is defined and used within the context of the text used.
Thinking skills are easily incorporated in reading/literature classes when students are expected to compare, contrast, respond to “what if” situations, and essay questions. Students have an opportunity to utilize their thinking skills in communication and expression in both written and oral work.ILA Mr. Waylan Curriculum
