SIMONSON, EVELYN; AND OTHERS
DEVELOPED FOR USE IN THE MADISON, WISCONSIN, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, THIS GUIDE FOR GRADES K-6 PROVIDES THE FRAMEWORK FOR AN INTEGRATED LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM WITH EMPHASIS ON LISTENING AND SPEAKING. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM ARE STATED IN TERMS OF THE EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE AVERAGE STUDENT. A FLOW CHART, ARRANGED FROM AGES 5-12, SHOWS THE CORRELATION BETWEEN CHILDREN'S CHARACTERISTIC MATURITY TRAITS AND THEIR INTERESTS PERTAINING TO LANGUAGE ARTS. THE CHART ALSO LISTS SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES TO IMPLEMENT THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS IMPLIED BY THAT CORRELATION. SUGGESTIONS FOR DEVELOPING EXPECTANCIES AT EACH GRADE LEVEL ARE GIVEN IN THREE SEPARATE SECTIONS--LISTENING, SPEAKING, AND WRITING. A SAMPLE UNIT ON A TRIP TO AN AIRPORT, ADAPTABLE FOR USE IN ANY GRADE, ILLUSTRATES RELATED LEARNING EXPERIENCES, SPECIFIC INTERRELATIONSHIPS IN LANGUAGE, OUTCOMES AND ABILITIES ACQUIRED, AND GRADE LEVEL EXPECTANCIES. REFERENCES FOR TEACHERS AND A SECTION ENTITLED "QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT LANGUAGE" ARE ALSO INCLUDED. THIS GUIDE IS A COMPANION TO "GUIDE TO TEACHING READING AND LITERATURE." (SEE TE 000 082.)
