ELA DEPARTMENT

The study of English Language Arts in the Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy cultivates literate citizens who think critically, write clearly, communicate effectively, and read with understanding and appreciation.                                       

As a result of participating in the Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy English Language Arts program--through reading, writing, speaking, and listening--graduates will effectively and independently:

  • comprehend a range of texts and media;

  • communicate ideas while responding to varying demands;

  • generate questions and seek answers through critical analysis of text and media;

  • seek understanding of themselves and others;

  • embrace lifelong learning and reading for enjoyment;

  • develop a critical eye and appreciation for the written word.
