MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Armenian Sisters’ Academy follows the Common Core State Standards in the area of English Language Arts (ELA). Our students learn how to use multiple strategies for reading comprehension of short stories, novels, poetry, and a variety of nonfiction texts. In addition, our students learn critical thinking and text analysis skills, and how to communicate effectively through writing for multiple audiences and a variety of purposes. We teach students common spelling rules and patterns, how to effectively decode vocabulary through context clue strategies, roots and prefixes/suffixes (affixes), and the basics of grammar, usage, and mechanics. We administer the IOWA Test of basic skills to assess the quality of learning at ASA and through the use of Accelerated Reader, ELA teachers monitor and manage students’ independent reading.
