A language arts program for Navajo children is presented in this curriculum guide based on needs outlined in the Bureau of Indian Affairs' publication "Curriculum Needs of Navajo Pupils." The program should provide each Navajo pupil with an opportunity to acquire a basic mastery of the English language in order to integrate his own background experience and needs into those of an English-speaking society. The guide is divided into 4 skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Each section consists of primary objectives for the language arts skill and a series of activities sequenced according to level of difficulty. The teacher can select from the specific activities described in accordance with the needs and capabilities of the students, the integration possibilities from one section to another, and his own inclinations. Appendices give information for making and using specified instructional materials. Related documents are RC 005 056 and RC 005 058. (JH)
