Welcome to the West Shore ESD English Language Arts Page. We are devoted to supporting the teaching and learning of literacy at all levels of education.

"Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate and compute using printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning to enable an individual to achieve his or her goals, to develop his or her knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in the wider society."
- United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

These pages are designed to assist educators in accessing reliable resources.
