A Course of Study for Language Arts in Utah. Elementary.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
Consistent with the Utah State Office of Education philosophy that listening, speaking, reading, and writing are integral aspects of the total curriculum, the strands included in this elementary language arts guide are study skills, affective language, literature, composition, speaking and listening, and grammar and usage. Each of the strands is divided into general learning objectives that group related student outcomes together. Accompanying each objective are precise statements of measurable language arts behaviors to be demonstrated by the student. All objectives carry a six-digit number (identifying the subject area, level, and strand) and a three-digit number (providing information to the state education agency concerning the relationship of each objective to the general curriculum goals). Objective numbers are used to identify related instructional support materials, including evaluation instruments, record keeping materials, and teaching strategies, as well as commercial materials that can be coded to the objectives. The guide also provides an overview of the curriculum framework, state maturity goals and related curriculum goals, language arts problem objectives, an overview of the course of study and a resource file, language arts scope and sequence charts, and growth and development theoretical foundation charts.
