Language Arts Curriculum

The Elementary Language Arts program at Khartoum American school utilizes a student-centered, collaborative and cross-curricular approach in support of balanced literacy. We acknowledge children’s diverse development and natural disposition to learn. In response, we differentiate our instruction to make learning experiences accessible and engaging. We believe that such an approach will empower our students to flourish as competent, compassionate, and effective communicators in the 21st century.


The foundation for our program is built upon a framework for teaching and learning using the AERO and ISTE standards and performance indicators in the key areas of:



Listening and Speaking

Viewing and Presenting

Information and Communication Technology


Through a wide range of assessments, our curriculum encourages the consistent growth of critical and creative thinking, quality communication, independence and reflection at developmentally appropriate levels.
