Aims and Goals

The aim of the Saskatchewan English language arts curricula is to help students understand and appreciate language and to use it confidently and competently in a variety of situations for learning, communication, work, life, and personal satisfaction.

The K-12 English Language Arts goals identify what students are expected to know and be able to do upon completion of study in this subject by the end of Grade 12. The three K-12 goals of the Saskatchewan English language arts curricula are:

  • Comprehend and Respond - Children will extend their abilities to view, listen to, read, comprehend, and respond to a range of contemporary and traditional grade-level texts in a variety of forms (oral, print, and other texts) from First Nations/ Métis, and other cultures for a variety of purposes including for learning, interest, and enjoyment.

  • Compose and Create - Children will extend their abilities to speak, write, and use other forms of representation to explore and present thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a variety of forms for a variety of purposes and audiences.

  • Assess and Reflect - Children will assess their own language skills; discuss the skills of effective viewers, representers, listeners, speakers, readers, and writers; and set goals for future improvement.
