Communications--Language Guideline. Intermediate.
East York Board of Education, Toronto (Ontario).
The guidelines suggested by the East York Curriculum Committee (Toronto, Canada) attempt to define fundamental principles about both language and child development. Geared toward the intermediate level student, this curriculum guide breaks down the essential skills of (1) listening, including note-taking; (2) speaking, with emphasis on intonation and regional and social dialects; (3) reading, focusing on diagnosis, comprehension, and literature; and (4) writing, including discussion of content and grammar. Specific exercises to attain mastery in these areas are suggested. Appendixes discuss issues in both teacher and student evaluation, teaching English to non-native speakers or to those with specific learning disabilities, remedial and corrective teaching, and test-taking skills. A bibliography of texts about psycholinguistics and reading, intermediate teaching resources, and professionally related matters is also included. (KS)
