Welcome to English/Language Arts with Mr. Velazquez
"Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education." -Martin Luther King Jr.
Our ELA Philosophy:
English/ language arts is the ability that enables one to think logically and creatively; express ideas; understand and participate meaningfully in spoken, written, and nonverbal communications; formulate and answer questions; and search for, organize, evaluate, and apply information. The English/ language classes provide integrative, interactive ways of thinking that develop through reading, writing, speaking and listening, viewing, and application of the mechanics of language.
