Elementary English/Language Arts Course of Study for Grade Six.
Rochester Public Schools, Minn.
This curriculum guide, one of a series designed for use in kindergarten and the elementary grades, has been compiled with the recognition that the basic ingredients of a language arts program--composition, speaking, listening, literature, and problem solving--are interrelated and constantly complement one another and that this entire process is enhanced by the development of the child's imagination. Introductory material includes a curriculum diagram for the English language arts, a scope and sequence chart, and a list of resources. The contents are divided into five categories, each relating to language for the sixth grade level. Under these, there are five subcategories: (1) perception and human relations; (2) listening, oral and body language, written language (practical), and written language (creative); (3) history of English language, usage, and semantics and dialects; (4) grammar, literature, and composition; and (5) capitalization, punctuation, paragraphing, dictionary, and letter writing. For each of these subcategories the guide outlines the concept, skills, available resources, and helpful activities. Thirteen appendixes provide additional material related to the level and contents of the guide. (JM)
