SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Language Arts Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Instructional and assessment activities are presented in this teacher's guide to unit nine's language arts strand for third graders. Activities in reading, language analysis, and creative expression, both oral and written, are formulated in kits 33-36; they center around the basic theme of the nation as a community. Focus, objectives, and materials for each activity are given in English and Spanish with teacher instructions only in Spanish. Reading for details and analysis of elements in the stories are stressed as students progress through the two small readers "Relatos de Nuestra Tierra" and "Cuentos y Leyendas". Following the reading exercises after each unit are activities which identify language forms used in the home and school, trace the different languages spoken in the United States, and analyze the origins of words and names. Creative expressions include identification of various forms of communication by signs, smoke, drums, oral, and others, and creation of new ones with pictographs, body language, and sign language. Assessment activities for each kit include criteria for evaluation, exercises, and assessment sheets. These are designed to provide appropriate testing materials by which to measure the knowledge the children have acquired and help the teacher to determine which concepts need reinforcement. (DS)
