RMEC is proud of the great work that is being done in the ELA – English Language Arts department. ELA forms the foundation for effective communication. The ability to construct meaning through reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing, and the process of inquiring as well as the ability to present ideas through writing, speaking, and visual media are the bases of English Language Arts and what we seek to impart in each of our courses.
The study of ELA encourages students to control their lives and become more effective thinkers through communication, reflection, and understanding. ELA forms the basis of success in all courses as ELA constitutes both a discipline in its own right, like mathematics or science, and a means of communicating about all other disciplines. Without a command of these English Language Arts skills it is difficult to think about, understand, or explain other disciplines. The ELA department emboldens students to become masters at literature and rhetoric in a manner that will confidently prepare them for their future endeavors.

2020 Summer Enrichment through Khan Academy
Due to COVID-19 and in respect for our students and families who are facing many challenges, Robert Morgan is opting to provide the opportunity for summer enrichment through Khan Academy. Khan Academy is available to students via their student portal. Khan Academy teamed up with the creators of the SAT, College Board, to provide full-length practice tests, helpful video tutorials, and resources for free. Every student is expected to complete 30 hours each of Khan Academy Activities in both Reading and Math which will be graded for completion through the Language Arts and Math classes.
This year there are no specific, mandatory summer reading and AP courses. However, we encourage all of our students to engage in academic enrichment throughout the summer beyond Khan Academy activities.
