Recommended English Curriculum Guides K-12 and Criteria for Planning and Evaluation.
Scannell, William J., Ed.
The first part of this two-part document is an annotated list of recommended guides for the benefit of schools and agencies that are developing curricula and writing guides. The purpose of this list is to publicize good curriculum planning and guide writing in order to provide models for schools revising their programs and seeking a variety of sample frameworks, units, and lesson plans. The list is a cumulative one selected from guides reviewed and recommended by the Committee on Curriculum Bulletins of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) since January 1968. The second part of this document contains evaluation criteria established by the NCTE committee for the following purposes: (1) to serve as a tool with which to evaluate the curriculum guides, (2) to give school curriculum committees an instrument for planning curriculum or revising their curriculum guides, (3) to apply to many different content emphases within the field of the English language studies along with variations in organization and methodology. Each criterion is accompanied by an annotation. (CK)
