Integrated Language Arts


Give your students the tools to thrive in adolescence as you introduce them to works of classic and contemporary literature, teach them to write, and train them in the habits of lifelong learning. By growing as a reader and writer yourself, you'll be equipped to guide students toward becoming well-informed, creative, and interesting people.
