Introduction - K-12 Broad Goals for English Language Arts - References - Matrix

These goal statements establish general expectations of what New Hampshire students should know and be able to do in English language arts at the end-of-grade twelve. They will be attained as students acquire the facts, concepts, skills, and processes enumerated under each of the five organizing strands--reading; writing; speaking, listening, and viewing; literature; and English language uses--presented in this curriculum framework.

  • Students will read fluently, with understanding and appreciation.
  • Students will write effectively for a variety of purposes and audiences.
  • Students will speak purposefully and articulately.
  • Students will listen and view attentively and critically.
  • Students will understand, appreciate, interpret, and critically analyze classical and contemporary American and British literature as well as literary works translated into English.
  • Students will use reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing to:
  • Gather and organize information; communicate effectively; and
    succeed in educational, occupational, civic, social, and everyday settings.
NHEON is a collaborative project between the New Hampshire Department of Education and educators all across the state.
