Chalk Talk: The Importance of English Language Arts’ Many Components
As new states adopt and commit to the Common Core State Standards, students will receive more rigorous instruction and assessment in the English Language Arts (ELA). ELA relates to more than reading and writing; it is at the core of all academic disciplines. Literacy that matters in classroom instruction includes reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Parents and teachers should encourage students to speak by asking questions and having an open dialogue with them. Students should also be encouraged to communicate verbally through group and classroom discussions. Listening is the other component to speaking. Parents and teachers can help children practice listening by modeling and using visual cues (i.e., holding up a hand). Other means of communication include writing and reading. As with speaking and listening, writing and reading are important tools for a literate person. From their first creation of letters to writing compositions, students learn how to communicate with others through this method.
