This publication is one in a series being developed for the English language arts curriculum, prekindergarten through the twelfth grade. The series is in five strands: reading, literature, speech, composition, and language. Although treated separately for purposes of clear and systematic development, in classroom practice the strands are interwoven, the presentation incorporating several and sometimes all of the five filaments. The handbook is divided into two sections: Strand Three - Speech, and Strand Four - Composition. The five chapters under Strand Three are: 1. Overview of the Speech Curriculum; II. Speaking and Listening in Grades 5-12; III. The Speech Fundamentals Course; IV. Acquisition of Standard English Patterns; and V. Evaluation. Strand Four consists of: VI. Overview of the Composition Curriculum; VII. Patterns for Teaching Composition; VIII. A Ladder of Composition Skills; IX. Types of Writing; and X. Evaluating Written Composition. (Author/LS)
