Language Arts

The English/language arts program of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation develops proficient language users -- readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. It advances a foundation of effective learning tools (including new technology) that allows students to expand, discover, and gain knowledge and to work individually and cooperatively to become problem solvers. Although the English/language arts program stresses the importance of using standard English effectively, it also fosters respect for regional and multi-cultural differences within the English language and an appreciation of other languages and their contributions to a global society.
