SPEAKING AND LISTENING
ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
Speaking and listening are critical skills required for an ever-changing and complex world. Employers expect students to graduate from high school and college with the skills needed to communicate effectively and appropriately with colleagues and other stakeholders. Additionally, students need to acquire active and empathetic listening ability to succeed in the world. Interpersonal skills are part of what colleges and employers refer to as “soft skills.” Students will develop these skills in middle school and high school in a variety of contexts, including collaborative learning, oral presentations, group discussion, and speech and debate elective offerings.
