Guidelines (Tentative) to Secondary Language Arts, Grades 9-12.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
This state curriculum guide is intended to provide Alaskan secondary school language art teachers with a sequential instructional program designed to meet the need of students in all aspects of language arts in grades 9-12. After an introductory statement on the use of the guide and a discussion of the needs and characteristics of youth, the guide is divided into two parts: oral arts and written arts. Under the former, speaking and listening are discussed; and under the latter, language, rhetoric, composition, creative writing, spelling, literature, and reading are dealt with. For each subject and for each grade, charts of general and specific curriculum goals are given. Evaluation methods and supplementary materials are sometimes suggested. One appendix contains bibliographies of materials for remedial reading, of materials for teaching reading, and of books for Alaskans. A second appendix gives, briefly, information on the organization of remedial reading courses, on motivation for creative writing, on new directions in language, and on problems in bilingualism. (LH)
