Course of Study for the Language Arts: Grades One through Twelve.
Ridley Township School District, Folsom, PA.
Suggested materials and activities for three grade levels are presented in this language arts guide. The elementary and junior high programs are designed to satisfy the child's basic need for language and to help him reach higher levels of development; the senior high program, broad enough to include the extremes of academic ability, emphasizes the acquisition of knowledge through personal involvement and those skills and experiences which add depth and significance to life. Lesson plans for grades 1-9 are organized into three sections--"Area,""Learning," and "Suggested Activities"--indicating the scope and sequence of the course and giving directions and suggested teacher references. The material for grades 10-12 is divided into 5 areas--listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar and usage--each of which includes "Learning and Skills" and "Suggested Experiences and Activities" (the latter coded for four levels of student ability). An 80-page appendix offers standards and forms for teaching such various language activities as letter writing, creative writing, outlining, exposition, and penmanship. (LH)
