What CPI says: The purpose of the English Language Arts program is to help students develop ease and confidence in the exchange of ideas with others, through reading, writing, speaking and listening. They learn to read with comprehension and discretion, sift information, analyze and respond to various literary genres: novels, short stories, essays, plays, poems. Students examine and practice writing essays, reviews, monologues, journals, and drama. They examine literary elements, audience, mood, voice, atmosphere, theme, plot structure. They practice grammar, vocabulary, punctuation, manuscript presentation.
