Course Description

The English Language Arts and Reading Florida State Standards are organized into the following five strands: Reading for Literature, Reading for Informational Texts, Writing, Speaking and Listening and Language. 
Strands for Reading Literature and Informational Texts require students to read and understand a variety of literary and informational texts.  These strands are further divided into Clusters: Key Ideas and Details where students read closely for meaning, make logical inferences and cite textual evidence. Craft and Structure where students interpret words and phrases, determine meaning and tone, analyze the structure of both literary and informational texts, and assess how point of view or purpose affects the content and style of a text. The second cluster in the reading strand is Craft and Structure where students interpret words and phrases, determine meaning and tone, analyze the structure of both literary and informational texts, and assess how point of view or purpose affects the content and style of a text. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas is the third cluster in the Reading Strand where students evaluate content presented in diverse formats, trace and evaluate specific claims and arguments made in text and the validity of the arguments, and analyze how two or more texts address similar topics and themes. In the final reading cluster, Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity, students read and comprehend complex and literary informational texts.
The Writing Strand requires students to compose a variety of written texts with a clear controlling idea, coherent organization, and sufficient detail. It is divided into Text Types and Purposes where students write arguments to support claims with valid reasoning and evidence, write informative texts to examine and convey complex ideas, and write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events. The second cluster in the writing strand, Production and Distribution of Writing, requires students to know how to produce clear and coherent writing, develop and strengthen writing through planning revising, editing and rewriting while collaborating and to use technology to produce and publish writing. The third cluster, Research to Build and Present Knowledge,  asks that students conduct short as well as sustained research projects, avoid plagiarism and gather relevant information from multiple sources, and gather evidence from texts to support analysis and research. Finally, the Range of Writing Cluster asks that students write routinely for a range of tasks, purposes and audience.
The Speaking and Listening strand has two clusters, Comprehension and Collaboration and Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas. For Comprehension and Collaboration students are expected to prepare for and participate in conversations and collaborations, combine what they have learned from diverse media and formats and evaluate that information, evaluate reasoning, word choice, point of view and evidence. The Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas cluster involves presentation of information, findings, and evidence, strategic use of digital media, and a command of language.
The final strand of the Florida State Standards is Language. The first cluster of this strand, Conventions of Standards English, involves students demonstrating command of conventions, grammar and usage, and command of conventions of capitalization and spelling. The Knowledge of Language cluster and the Vocabulary Acquisition and Use cluster involve determining the meaning of unknown words and phrases, demonstrating an understanding of figurative language, word relationships and nuances, acquisition and use of academic and domain-specific words and phrases.
