ESL IVCourse Description: This course will focus on improving writing skills, reading comprehension, using grammar, listening, and speaking in content areas.

· Core Subjects and 21st Century Themes
· Learning and Innovation Skills
· Information, Media, and Technology Skills

Since R.J. Reynolds High School is a magnet school for the Visual and Performing Arts, the ESL core curriculum will be integrated with the arts.
