Junior High English Language Arts Curriculum and Program Guide.
Northwest Territories Dept. of Education, Yellowknife.
Noting that both first and second language students of English need teacher help in linking their experiences and language to new situations and structures presented in the junior high classroom, this curriculum and program guide (for the English language curriculum for all students at the junior high level in Canada's Northwest Territories) provides opportunities for students to further consolidate, practice, explore, and expand language skills already acquired. The first chapter of the guide discusses the general aims of language development (K-12) and the philosophy underlying the guide. The second chapter presents the curriculum organization and the statement of content. The third chapter discusses issues encountered before classes start, including: the role of the teacher, refocusing methodology, skill development, unit planning, and types of evaluation. The fourth chapter presents issues raised in the classroom, including: integration, small group discussion, speaking, listening, viewing, writing, grammar, and writing evaluation. The fifth chapter discusses basic, supplementary, and professional learning resources. A 60-item bibliography and a discussion of the RAFTS--Role, Audience, Format, Topic, Strong verb--assignment are attached. (RS)
