K-12 Course Goals in Language Arts. Second Edition.
Ferry, Clifford, Ed.; Scofield, Sandra, Ed.
One of a 12-volume set, this guide in language arts offers general program and specific course goals intended to clarify the purposes of education for students, teachers, parents, and the community. These goals provide explicit learning statements, define the nature and function of communication, and describe the values related to language arts. The volume contains a general introduction to the project, four color coded sets of indexes for locating course goals (knowledge and process classifications, language arts program goals, career education program goals, and language arts subject matter taxonomy), and 340 pages of course goals in valuing and language arts, language, literature, reading, writing, speaking, perception, and language arts and career education. Suggested uses for this guide include clarifying the purposes of education as a basis for teaching-learning evaluation and accountability, guiding the rewriting and development of courses and curriculum, and assisting long-range planning and systematic control of educational development.
