The language program and the six thematic literature units outlined in this oral-aural-visual guide for grade 9 were developed by the Indianapolis Public Schools under Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The literature units--"Excitement at Your Elbow,""Worlds of the Weird and the Wayout,""Close-Ups,""War and the Individual,""A Sound of Different Drummers," and "The High Cost of Living"--run concurrently with the language program which is based on 10 basic sentence patterns and their transformations, and which includes lessons on the history of the language and on dialects. Each of the literature and language units contains an outline of instructional steps, a brief statement of rationale for these steps, and lists of appropriate materials and such activities as composition assignments or special projects requiring the use of audiovisual equipment. In addition, transparency masters and suggestions for ditto masters are provided for use with the language units. (A more lengthy discussion of the rationale for the activities in thses units is found in TE 000 953.) (JS)
