Listening/Speaking (COMM)
Listening and speaking standards are designed to allow students to develop a wide array of practical oral communication and interpersonal skills. Objectives are structured to encourage students to collaborate, to listen carefully and express ideas effectively; adapt speech to context and purpose; integrate information from a variety of sources (including oral, visual, and multi-media sources); effectively evaluate oral/aural information; and creatively employ multi-media displays in order to support and achieve communicative goals.

Reading/Writing (ARW)
Reading and writing standards are designed to allow students to develop a broad range of effective reading strategies and provide exposure and practice in specific types of writing. Reading and writing objectives provide access to and deepen understanding of academic vocabulary as it appears in context. Objectives further provide opportunities for students to draw upon and incorporate evidence from literary and expository texts to inform their writing; guide students in writing to inform and explain, describe events, people, and circumstances; fashion narratives about real or imagined experiences; craft effective arguments; as well conduct and present research.
