SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Language Arts Strand, Unit 7, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Unit seven of a bilingual language arts strand for grade three contains both instructional and assessment activities in structured reading and creative written and oral expression, with a focus on the theme of the extended community. The teacher's guide for kits 25-28 lists the focus, objective, and materials needed for each activity in English and Spanish; detailed teacher instructions are in Spanish only. Sources for stories and poems to be read in each kit are two small, illustrated Spanish student books. In addition to the reading, kits cover paragraph structure, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, fantasy writing, writing of an interview, drama, similes and metaphors, free verse, oral expression through the senses, derivative words, biographies and autobiographies, changes in nouns, different kinds of words, dictionary skills, expression of feelings orally and through pantomime and body movements. Activities support four spiraling questions: what the elements are, how wants and needs are met, how change occurs, and what results of change are. Each kit, designed for a teaching period of two to three weeks, contains assessment activities. (RS)
