English Language Arts, Grades 9-11. Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This Manitoba (Canada) integrated language arts curriculum guide for grades 9 through 11 emphasizes the elements of the language process. At grade 9, the instructional emphasis is on the communication context--content, vehicle, and situation. At grade 10, the instructional emphasis is on audience and purpose, while the emphasis at grade 11 shifts to a consideration of style and how stylistic choices are affected by the five content elements of content, vehicle, situation, audience, and purpose. Finally, the grade 12 emphasis is on form, and a consideration of how all the other elements affect the final product. The contents are divided into 10 sections that cover such topics as program framework and overview, teaching approaches and strategies, the nature of evaluation, developing listening skills, general strategies in speaking, developing language through reading, general strategies in writing, developing language through literature and language study, and general strategies in language awareness. An annotated bibliography of teaching resources is included. (HOD)
