ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
R. B. Russell offers English Language Arts courses for grade 9, 10, 11 and 12. In English Language Arts students meet the curricular outcomes by doing six things:
Students in each grade are given opportunities to meet all of the Specific Learning Outcomes in the Manitoba English Language Arts curriculum. All of these SLO’s are sorted into five groups with General Learning Outcomes representing each one.
— Students will explore thoughts, ideas, feelings and experiences.
— Students will comprehend and respond personally and critically by oral, print and other media texts.
— Students will manage ideas and information.
— Students will enhance the clarity and artistry of communication.
— Students will celebrate and build community. Throughout the year, students participate in a wide variety of assessment including assessment for learning, assessment of learning and assessment as learning. ELA students in all of the clusters participate in a common summative assessment at the end of the year based on the grade they are in. Grade 12’s write the Provincial English Language Arts Standards Test.
The ELA Department at R. B. Russell has five priorities:
— Provide active, engaging, relevant learning that meets outcomes in the curriculum
— Foster a culture of reading and writing
— Maintain clear expectations and standards
— Build learning communities
— Provide a variety of formative and summative assessment
