A Sequential English-Language-Arts Curriculum in Linguistics, Logic, Semantics, Rhetoric, Composition, and Literary Analysis and Criticism for Grades Kindergarten Through Twelve. Final Report.
Wisconsin English Language Arts Curriculum Project, Madison.; Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
The goals of the Wisconsin-English-Language-Arts Curriculum Project were (1) to study what should be taught in English language arts in grades K-12, (2) to develop a sequential curriculum for those grades, (3) to design, identify, and test appropriate teaching methods and instructional materials, and (4) to establish demonstration centers to determine the success of the curriculum recommendations. The sequential curriculum--eventually published as one volume, "English Language-Arts in Wisconsin" (ED 018 410)--was developed in three stages: literature and reading; speaking and writing; and language and grammar. Development of each stage involved committee discussions and reports, conferences, guest lecturers, and summer workshops. (Appendices of this report list participants in the project and provide a chronological account of the 5 years of the project's existence.) (JS)
