Curriculum and Instruction

Success in school and in life is determined in large part by competence in language. As a significant means for developing students' abilities to use their minds well, language is a central factor in learning for all students and in all disciplines. The NYSED English Language Arts Office of Curriculum & Instruction webpage includes resources and information to support PreK-12 standards-based English Language Arts curriculum and instruction.

On this page, you will find links to the English Language Arts Learning Standards, Frequently Asked Questions, and links to other English Language Arts resources. In September 2017, the Board of Regents approved the Next Generation English Language Arts Learning Standards, which will first be implemented in school year 2020-2021. The English Language Arts Learning Standards and the Timeline and Roadmap for implementation can be found on the Next Generation Standards page.
