Produced in response to a school board's directive to develop a plan for implementing a standardized curriculum in the basic subjects on a district-wide basis, this resource guide is intended to provide teachers with ideas and materials that will assist them in teaching a course in functional basic English skills for eleventh grade students. Included in the guide are (1) an instructional standards checklist; (2) reference sheets providing lists of resources available for teaching particular reading and writing skills and objectives; and (3) an index to a series of instructional packets that were developed for each reading and writing skill emphasized in the course. Appendixes contain reading and spelling vocabulary lists, a statement of minimum standards for student performance, and an overview of the course objectives. (FL)
