English Language Arts

The revised New York State Standards aim to reimagine the educational framework for English language arts with the goal of better-supporting educators in their instructional practice and to provide additional guidance on achieving a vision of 21st-century literacy. While the Standards were designed to apply to the teaching and learning of all students in our state’s schools and are the result of collaborative and deliberate efforts between a diverse range of instructional experts, school leaders and parents, the supporting documents that are linked with the Standards provide additional guidance on implementation of the Standards with English Language Learners (ELLs), Multilingual Learners (MLLs), and Students with Disabilities (SWDs). It is the intention of the Board of Regents that these standards serve the intended function in our schools: preparing our students to become lifelong learners and thinkers, as well as active participants in civic, community and professional endeavors.
