About ELA

  • ELA Logo

    English Language Arts in Allen ISD is built on a comprehensive research-based approach to literacy instruction that empowers each reader and writer to reach his or her greatest potential. Through the integration of reading, writing, listening, thinking, and speaking students develop their literacy skills in order to think critically and adapt to the ever-evolving nature of literacy.

    English/Language Arts instruction in Allen ISD is built around these beliefs.

    The curriculum in Allen ISD is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) which are the state standards for what students should know and be able to do.  To access the TEKS for each grade level and course, click on this link.
