English Language Arts is the study and development of reading, writing, speaking, and listening effectively–enabling people to learn, think and communicate clearly. Being literate gives people the ability to become informed, to inform others, and to make informed decisions (Meltzer, Smith, and Clark 2001). The proficient use of English Language Arts is essential to learning of any kind. The integration of reading, writing, speaking and listening provides the means for accessing knowledge, thinking deeply about concepts and ideas, recording ideas and communicating ideas with others. As students use their ever-increasing knowledge base for each content area, it is imperative that their English Language Arts skills develop as well.
