Language Arts Curriculum Guide.
Hardin, C. Eugene; Kirszenbaum, Linda
Designed to lend support to South Carolina's mandated language arts goals and objectives and to provide a tool flexible enough to meet the needs of a changing society, this curriculum guide describes an integrated sequence of instruction in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and observing from kindergarten through grade 12. After a brief introduction to the program's philosophy and purpose, the guide presents an overview of its scope and sequence, describing when objectives should be introduced, developed, and maintained. It then presents five sections that provide specific skills lists for kindergarten through grade 12. The major section of the guide contains the program's management system. Introduced by a glossary of language arts terms, a bibliography of helpful materials, and an index of skills and activities, this part of the guide presents a series of speaking, listening, and reference/study/media activities designed to test student skills at specific grade levels. Extensive appendixes include lesson plans, booklists, evaluation instruments, vocabulary lists, and descriptions of student language arts projects. (MM)
