A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, GRADE 2, UNITS 13-22.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
IN THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM FOR GRADE TWO, DEVELOPMENT OF A SENSE OF LANGUAGE USAGE AND OF NARRATIVE FORM AND PLOT IS STRESSED. SUCH CLASSIC FOLK TALES AS "LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD" AND "THE THREE BEARS" POINT OUT THE REPETITION OF PLOT STRUCTURE AND LANGUAGE FOUND IN STORIES. FUN WITH LANGUAGE FORMS IS ENCOURAGED THROUGH THE READING OF "JUST SO STORIES," AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE MYTH IS FURTHERED IN "THE GOLDEN TOUCH." THREE AESOP FABLES ARE PRESENTED FOR SIMPLE ANALYSIS OF COMMON DEVICES AND PATTERNS USED IN FABLES. MOREOVER, SEVERAL DR. SEUSS STORIES AND TWO ADVENTURE TALES--"BLAZE AND THE FOREST FIRE" AND "THE BEARS ON HEMLOCK MOUNTAIN"--HELP STUDENTS PERCEIVE BOTH REAL AND FANCIFUL VIEWS OF REALITY. "CROW BOY" AND "CAROLINE AND HER KETTLE NAMED MAUD" ILLUSTRATE HOW CHILDREN TODAY SHARE UNIVERSAL EXPERIENCES AND PROBLEMS WITH CHILDREN OF DIFFERENT CULTURES AND DIFFERENT TIMES. AS CHILDREN BECOME FAMILIAR WITH LITERARY METHODS AND BEGIN TO RECOGNIZE RHYTHMIC AND PHONOLOGICAL PATTERNS IN COMPOSITIONS, THEY ARE ABLE TO CREATE STORIES OF THEIR OWN, USING AS MODELS THE LITERATURE READ IN CLASS. THIS MANUAL IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS, 215 NEBRASKA HALL, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA 68508. (SEE ALSO TE 000 048, TE 000 054, AND TE 000 055.) (JB)
