Welcome to Language Arts at Baldwin Intermediate School. Please click on your grade level to the left to proceed. VDOE goals of English Standards of Learning are to teach students to read and to prepare students to participate in society as literate citizens, equipped with the ability to communicate effectively in their communities, in the work place, and in postsecondary education. As students progress through the school years, they become active and involved listeners and develop a full command of the English language, evidenced by their use of standard English and their rich speaking and writing vocabularies."VDOE News & Announcements
