Speaking: Learning to speak English with increasing accuracy and fluency, in order to convey meaning appropriate to a wide range of social and academic contexts.
Reading: Learning to read in English with increasing comprehension for a variety of purposes.
Writing: Learning to produce written English with increasing fluency and accuracy to convey meaning appropriately in a wide range of social and academic contexts.
Culture: Leaning concepts that result in knowledge and awareness of the history and culture of classmates, Virginia, and the Unites States.
