Language Arts Curriculum.
Intermountain School, Brigham City, UT.
Based on a coordinated aural-oral approach, this language arts curriculum guide was developed to teach Navajo students English as a second language. The design of the curriculum provides for longitudinal and horizontal movements to favor concept formation by inductive experience. The plan gears instruction to three instructional levels: low (the learner with first to third grade reading achievement); medium (the learner with fourth to sixth grade reading skills); and high (the learner with seventh grade reading skills or above). Within each class the program provides for the placement of students in a group appropriate to their academic achievement and readiness. Each quarter is broken down into units on grammar, writing, speaking and listening, and reading and literature, with performance objectives listed under each. It is anticipated that this curriculum plan will offer a scope that will stimulate the students' interests, provide a means for closer correlation with their vocational interests and training, and open an avenue for broader cultural integration.
