The Penn’s Grove Language Arts curriculum includes a rigorous approach with an in-depth study and analysis of a wide range of literature including novels, short stories, poetry, drama and nonfiction. The Language Arts department integrates the Pennsylvania Core Standards of craft and structure, key ideas and details, text analysis, integration of knowledge and ideas, and vocabulary acquisition and use. The teaching staff encourages students to critically think, independently read, effectively communicate with others and develop the essential vocabulary and grammatical skills necessary in meeting the Pennsylvania Core Standards. In the eighth grade, there is an emphasis on formal research.
