Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System

English Language Arts

English Language Arts emphasizes reading and writing skills across all grade levels through Composition, Language, and Reading and Literature, which articulate a set of beliefs about the teaching, learning, and assessing of speaking, viewing, listening, reading, and writing. Although represented separately in the framework, the strands are, in fact, interdependent. Each strand intertwines with and supports the others.
