ELA Lab is a course aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in ELA which emphasizes the advancement of the reading and writing skills as designated by students’ individual education plans and the associated skills found in the New Jersey state-mandated assessment.  The units of study for reading include: reading literature and nonfiction narratives, literal and inferential comprehension, academic vocabulary skills, and critical thinking and analysis skills.  The units of study for writing include sentence structure, organization of ideas, paragraph development, and on-demand writing of essays.  Students’ grades are based on teacher observation, tests, quizzes, projects, class participation, classwork, and marking period assessments.
