A Developing Curriculum in English: Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve. Second Edition. Studies in Curriculum Development No. 3.
Gibbs, Vanita; Mullican, James
This monograph describes a curriculum first published 14 years ago that is based on students' human development. The described curriculum utilizes a framework of the language arts of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and literature understanding and leaves to the imagination and skill of the individual teacher how the curriculum is implemented. The booklet is divided into an introduction with a statement of the curriculum objectives and philosophy, summaries of the characteristics of each age group affected and of the program's guiding principles, a description of the entire kindergarten through grade 12 curriculum, and a final section on the practical application of curriculum materials. The curriculum description makes up the major portion of the booklet and is broken down into grade levels, each of which lists suggested activities and occasional texts under five headings: improving group participation in group and individual activities; improving speech sounds; improving language patterns, oral and written; improving reading techniques and skills; and improving literature understanding.
