English Language Arts
The goal of the Alabama English Language Arts curriculum is for all students to achieve English language literacy in order to be college- and career-ready. This is accomplished through a sequential, comprehensive curriculum that develops lifelong, critical thinkers who approach problem solving with confidence.
The academic content standards in this course of study are based on and include all standards in the 2010 Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects as well as supplemental content designed to strengthen the standards for Alabama’s students. The grade placement and examples for some standards in Grades 9-12 have been altered from the Common Core State Standards to better align with Alabama history standards.
