Recommended English Language Arts Curriculum Guides K-12 and Criteria for Planning and Evaluation.
Winkeljohann, Rosemary, Ed.
The first half of this booklet presents an annotated list of recommended curriculum guides representing a variety of sample frameworks, units, and lesson plans intended for reference use by schools and agencies who are in the process of developing a curriculum. Grouped according to the year in which the guides were recommended (1978, 1977, 1976), each annotation provides the following information: the grade levels involved; a statement regarding the educational philosophy or approach; a description of the content, aims, and objectives; and information on obtaining the guide. The second half of the booklet contains a revised statement of criteria for planning and evaluation of English language arts curriculum guides. The evaluation instrument presented in the booklet was designed to apply to many different content emphases within the field of English language studies, as well as to the learning process, organization, methodology, and language versatility. Criteria are organized under the headings of philosophy, policies and procedures, objectives, organization, process as content, language, composition, media, reading and literature, evaluation, and design.
