Developing Competency in Written Composition in Children from Kindergarten through Elementary School by Means of Curriculum Materials. Final Report.
Sutton, Rachel S.; Tingle, Mary J.
This report presents the problems and activities of the University of Georgia English Curriculum Study Center in creating a curriculum in written composition for children from kindergarten through grade 6. The design of the curriculum study center is discussed in terms of the rationale behind the study, the necessary basic research, the objectives of the center, and the development of curriculum materials. A series of yearly reports provides a chronological account of the center's operations; and the five books, including 14 individual bulletins, produced by the center are described. Evaluation of the center's materials is presented through an analysis of the skills mastered by students studying under the new curriculum. References used by the center, sample lesson observation records, and a discussion by L. Ramon Veal about the attempt to develop an instrument for measuring composition ability in young children are appended. (See also TE 000 973-TE 000 977.) (LH)
