English Language Arts
ALL OF THIS ART WORK WAS CREATED BY THE AMAZING THINKER -
LEONARDO DA VINCI
WELCOME TO TEAM DA VINCI - ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
with Mr. Elliott
NOTE: OUR MAJOR FOCUS WILL BE METACOGNITION, WHICH IS THE PROCESS OF PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN THINKING....
Vision Statement: Language Arts
The stories we tell ourselves about our lives become the meaning we make of who we are.
In English Class we engage in:
- learning language
- learning about language by structuring it effectively
- learning the importance of precise language to say what we mean
- learning to play with language to make our our message vivid, clear, and compelling
These are all activities that enable individuals to acquire, use, and expand their knowledge, skills, and ideas
in order to become lifelong learners, critical and creative thinkers, and effective communicators.
