English Language Arts

    As a means of achieving College and Career Readiness, the English Language Arts curriculum must define a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century.   In short, students must develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language.  Such an instructional approach engages students in meaningful reading and writing experiences on a regular basis as a means to demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to deliberation and responsible citizenship. CPS follows The New Jersey Student Learning Standards for English Language Arts (ELA)  which build on the best of existing standards and reflect the skills and knowledge students need to succeed in college, career, and life.
    Through the use interactive and engaging activities, CPS has created a cohesive program that allows our students to make a seamless transition from the elementary grades to the secondary level within the framework of Reader's and Writer's Workshop.  Students of all grade levels work on authentic tasks that require a synthesis of skills across different disciplines.
