  • read a wide range of print and non-print texts to build an understanding of texts, of themselves, and of the cultures of the United States and the world; to acquire new information
  • adjust spoken, written, and visual language (e.g., conventions, style, and vocabulary) to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences and for different purposes
  • use a variety of technological and informational resources to gather and synthesize information and to create and communicate knowledge
  • develop an understanding of and respect for diversity in language use, patterns, and dialects across cultures, ethnic groups, geographic regions, and social roles
  • use spoken, written, and visual language to accomplish their own purposes (e.g., for learning, enjoyment, persuasion, and the exchange of information)
  • participate as knowledgeable, reflective, creative, and critical members of a variety of literacy communities

Community Club also helps students meet the following content strands for Social Studies, as set forth by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS):

  • Culture: learn how to understand multiple perspectives that derive from different cultural vantage points
  • People, Places, and Environments: utilize technological advances to connect to the world beyond their personal locations. The study of people, places, and human-environment interactions assists learners as they create their spatial views and geographic perspectives of the world.
  • Individual Development and Identity: learn to ask questions such as Why do people behave as they do? What influences how people learn, perceive, and grow?
  • Civic Ideas and Practices: study the ideals, principles, and practices of citizenship in a democratic republic
