    At Lockport Township High School, the English Department takes an integrated approach to language arts instruction. In many English departments, students study reading, writing, speaking, and listening separately or in the context of examining a limited number of themes which can be derived from the literature. We take an integrated approach because our English teachers recognize that language processes are reciprocal and can support each other: Reading helps one develop as a writer; experience as a careful listener prepares one to be sensitive to the needs of an audience. In addition, we recognize the importance of presenting a curriculum which students can find coherent. In most cases, teachers achieve the coherence by relating the several language activities to a unifying theme. The idea is to help students to recognize the big picture and see how the variety of activities from week to week and month to month are related.
