    The goal of the EL program is to assist students in developing competence in all areas of English language acquisition.  The content covered in EL mirrors the content of the students’ grade level class instruction.  The academic content is the vehicle through which language is taught.
    Listening:  Learning to understand English spoken in a wide range of 
    social and academic contexts.

    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:  Learning concepts that result in knowledge and awareness of the history and culture of classmates, Virginia, and the United States.
