About English Language Arts
English Language Arts (ELA) helps students develop & hone their skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and representing.
In ELA courses the various reading materials and written forms that students encounter fall into two broad categories: aesthetic and pragmatic.
Aesthetic texts are created for the purpose of evoking emotion, recreating experiences and exploring language (poetry, short stories, novels). Pragmatic texts are created with a practical purpose in mind, such as: telling a news story or selling a product (proposals, brochures).
