District 64 Language Arts Curriculum

The mission of District 64’s Literacy Program is to  1) encourage a love of reading and 2) develop students who are strategic and skillful readers capable of reading and understanding a wide variety of text.  Students will use reading as a means for gaining information and exploring new ideas.

An overview of the Language Arts curriculum  by grade level can be found on the Grade Level Curriculum Overview page.  In 2010, the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts were adopted as Illinois' new learning standards.
