English Language Arts

The Cedar Rapids Community School District takes an integrated approach to building essential foundational skills in literacy to ensure students have the reading, writing, speaking and listening abilities to produce creative and purposeful expression in language.

One of our goals is to produce students who will be able to read critically in order to carefully pick through the overwhelming amount of information available in print and digitally. An additional goal is to produce students who will be able to undertake close, attentive reading required to be able to understand and enjoy complex works of literature. Both of these skills are critical in order to be a literate person in the twenty-first century.

English Language Arts instruction in the Cedar Rapids Community School District is aligned with the academic standards in the Iowa Core.
