  • The more you read, the more things you know.
    The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

  • The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the International Reading Association (IRA) have designated six language arts. The first four have tradionally been considered to be the language arts; however, since visual media have become more important in everyday life, viewing and visually representing have become more important as means of communicating.
    The Language Arts
    • Listening: understanding spoken language
    • Speaking: communicating ideas through oral language
    • Reading: understanding written language
    • Writing: communicating through written language
    • Viewing: understanding visual images and connecting them to accompanying spoken or written words
    • Visually Representing: presenting information through images, either alone or along with spoken or written words
