English Language Arts (ELA)
Our library of ELA courses includes comprehensive grade 5-11 instruction for middle and high school:
Each English course is aligned both to Common Core standards and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. When compared to traditional textbooks, our e-learning courses are like having multiple books:
- Writing handbook
- Reading manual
- Classic novels
The best way to improve a student’s reading skills is simply more experience with reading. Therefore, our courses walk students through more than 100 passages and ask comprehension questions in topics like main idea, supporting idea, vocabulary, author intent, organization, tone, style, and figurative language. The type of material each course includes ranges from creative non-fiction to classic novels like Oliver Twist in our 8th grade course to The Great Gatsby in our 11th grade course.
