Basic Language Arts-Beginning

Home / Basic Language Arts-Beginning

This competency-based course provides instruction in basic language arts for four grade levels — Level 0 (readiness), 1, 2 and 3. Emphasis is placed on readiness skills, oral and listening skills, composition, mechanics, grammar and usage; writing applications integrated with life skills; critical thinking skills; and reference, location and study skills.

Adults are provided with the basic language skills that integrate the CCRS for listening, speaking, reading, and writing, English-Language Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools, Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) competencies, and the Model Program Standards for Adult Basic Education. The ultimate goal is to help adult students acquire the competencies needed to fulfill their roles as family members, workers and community members.

The 1200 hours indicated for the completion of this course are based on a student entering as a nonreader and advancing to grade Level 3.9. However, most students enter the language program at various abilities and skill levels and may not need 1200 hours to complete this course outline. The completion time will differ for each student. This course outline also includes applications and mechanisms for ongoing evaluation of the students so that promotion and advancement occur on a regular basis, and the students do not remain in the program for more time than needed.
