Teacher's Guide for Language Arts, Grades 4-8.
Saint Louis Public Schools, MO.
This curriculum guide was developed according to the convictions that all language skills complement and reinforce each other, that the pupil should learn to use these skills as a means of communicating effectively, that the language program should help the pupil utilize the language skills in all other areas of study, and the the ultimate goal of the program is to enable the pupil to become a functioning member of the world community. The guide outlines the goals, objectives, materials, course content, and suggestions for language and reading in each of the five grades. An additional section outlines a gifted program, the goal of which is to promote pupil growth toward self-initiated and self-directed learning. An appendix contains the Dale-Chall Readability Index for"Adventures in Reading," a glossary of terms, and a pupil record sheet. (JM)
