Learning Language Arts Through Literature

Learning Language Arts Through Literature is a complete language arts program for first grade through eighth grade. Using an integrated approach to teaching, students learn the skills appropriate for each grade level in the context of quality literature. Reading real books instead of basal stories makes reading more attractive to the student. This creates a deeper understanding and generates greater interest in grammar, writing mechanics, vocabulary, spelling, and other language skills. The goal of any language arts program should be to equip the student for a lifetime of communication through the written and spoken word.
