English Language Arts
While adhering to the Quebec Ministry of Education’s guidelines, the English Language Arts program can be adapted or modified depending on the skill level of the student. Students enjoy a variety of text and literature genres including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, short stories, novels, biographies, myths and legends, both in the classroom and in our library. Students facing challenges in reading and writing receive intensive remediation (See Support). Advanced students have the opportunity to surpass grade level skills.
Our students are enthusiastic language learners thanks to a variety of school events and activities which challenge and motivate them, including Book Club, Reading Challenge, Reader’s Theatre, an online e-book guided reading program, and trips to the theatre. Our students connect with others through literature on a global level, by participating in the Global Read Aloud. Literary discussions with classes around the world increases engagement and ignites an appreciation for the value of reading. Our rich language arts program inspires our students to develop a love for reading that will last a lifetime.
