Language: B.C. (British Columbia); An Assessment in the English Language Arts, A Pilot Study. Part 2. A Report Dealing with Instructional Practices.
Evanechko, Peter; And Others
The first segment of a long-term educational assessment plan, for which this three-part report was compiled, called for a study that would survey the status of English language arts programs in the province of British Columbia and serve as a pilot for future assessment programs. This portion of the study presents the results of the second phase of the language survey which dealt with instructional practices in several areas of the English and language arts program, particularly student test performance and the scope and priorities of programs as designated by the teacher respondents. The report offers background and general information for all elementary language arts teachers; discusses the place of language arts in the kindergarten curriculum; presents a composite of learning experiences and teaching procedures in the areas of reading, written language, literature, and oral communication; and devotes a separate section to teaching practices on the secondary level. Each chapter is organized according to the kind and extent of learning experiences; the nature and organization of teaching procedures; the nature of learning activities; learning outcomes; application of knowledge; evaluation of attitudes, knowledge and skills; the development and achievement of goals; and interpretations and implications of the survey results.
