This curriculum guide in language teaching for kindergarten through grade twelve is the final "strand" of a five part project in the English language arts. It was preceded by guides devoted to reading, composition, listening and speaking, and literature. The guide is designed to assist elementary and secondary school teachers in improving the teaching of composition skills. Level designations are provided for the various exercises, but the importance of a continuing sequential development is stressed. The grammar and language usage sections, the first two parts of the book, describe language elements in their behavioral context. Representative teaching activities are suggested and can be adapted to the particular students taught. The last section, on the history of language, presents a brief chronology of the history of English, suggesting interrelationships between languages. The influence of other languages upon the grammar, sound, and vocabulary of English is also discussed. [See ED 035 626, ED 032 309 for related documents.] (Author/DI)
