Cranston School Dept., RI.
The Cranston (Rhode Island) Secondary School Curriculum Guides are intended to serve as a resource to teachers, students, department heads, guidance personnel, curriculum planners, and anyone else involved in curriculum planning. The guides are also useful for describing and communicating secondary curriculum goals to the public when such a need arises. This guide for English, grades 7-12, contains these sections: multimedia orientation; language structure; oral-aural skills; the novel; poetry--analysis and writing; the short story; and surveys of world, American, and English literature. In addition, guidelines are presented for several elective courses: the eternal search for utopia, children's literature, best selling novels, science fiction, tales of terror, the sixth sense, basic writing techniques, creative writing, letter writing, and argument and persuasion. For each section of the guide at least one broad major objective is stated, followed by specific objectives which indicate the level of learning, the content, and the means of evaluation. The activities that are suggested support the objectives. (TO)
