 English/Language Arts Instruction

 

Warren County Public Schools provides a comprehensive, balanced literacy program for all students. This comprehensive approach begins with the development of a strong foundation in phonemic awareness, student’s recognition of sounds, and oral language starting in kindergarten. Comprehension instruction is not limited to fiction and classic literature, but includes instruction in informational, or nonfiction texts, and the interpretation of visual information including illustrations, charts, graphs and electronic sources such as websites and online encyclopedias.

 

Warren County Public Schools also provides a comprehensive, challenging literacy program for all students. This comprehensive approach includes direct, explicit reading instruction throughout the upper elementary grades, middle school grades, and high school courses, with an emphasis on reading comprehension and vocabulary development. Comprehension instruction is not limited to fiction and classic literature, but includes instruction in expository, or nonfiction texts, and the interpretation of visual information including illustrations, charts, graphs and electronic sources such as websites and online encyclopedias. Writing is a key component of the literacy program and is practiced regularly so each student can enhance his or her writing expertise.
