Abstract

Many students seem unmotivated to participate in English language arts classes even when given opportunities to do so. This is a problem because skills refined in the E/LA classroom affect student achievement across other content areas. Which raises the question: How can we increase students’ motivation to participate in an E/LA classroom that benefits all students? To increase motivation, engagement, and achievement, a standards-based E/LA curriculum has been designed that combines creative writing with inquiry-based teaching approaches using complex texts and a student-centered environment.
