Students learn best when they are encouraged to consciously monitor their thinking as they learn, and each strand includes expectations that call for such reflection. The knowledge and skills described in the expectations in the four strands of the language curriculum will enable students to understand, respond to, create, and appreciate a full range of literary, informational, and media texts. The areas of learning are closely interrelated, and the knowledge and skills described in the four strands are interdependent and complementary. Teachers plan activities that blend expectations from the four strands in order to provide students with the kinds of experiences that promote meaningful learning and that help them recognize how literacy skills in the four areas reinforce and strengthen one another.

The chronological sequence of events may be altered, or time may be suspended or accelerated. Do not merely summarize the plot. Some novels and plays seem to advocate changes in social or political attitudes or in traditions.
It is the unhealable rift forced between a human being and a native place, between the self and its true home: its essential sadness can never be surmounted.
