The NISD High School English Language Arts Department encourages the curiosity and critical thinking skills of all students by providing diverse, relevant, and interactive learning experiences in alignment with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. We facilitate engaging, learner-centered instruction by providing a challenging curriculum and ongoing professional development on best evidence-based literacy practices, all designed to magnify the learning experience through sustained opportunities for writing, reading, and collaborative student talk. Through these targeted areas, we prepare high school students for postsecondary success in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
