Small Schools Reading Curriculum, 7-8: Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies. Scope, Objectives, Activities, Resources, Monitoring Procedures.
Hartl, David, Ed.; And Others
Designed to assist teachers in small schools with the improvement of curriculum and instruction and to help smaller districts which do not have curriculum personnel to comply with Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law, this guide contains reading curriculum materials for grades 7 and 8. The objectives listed are correlated to the Goals for Washington Common Schools and to broad K-12 reading program goals. The arrangement of information is designed to allow districts to personalize the curriculum materials to meet their own educational programs. The format consists of a sequential list of student learning objectives related to a specific area of the reading curriculum, followed by pages which feature one or more objectives and include activities, monitoring procedures, and possible resources used in teaching the objectives. Suggested grade placement of objectives and activities is indicated, and, where applicable, the relatedness of an objective to other curriculum areas is shown. Reading scope areas for grades 7-8 include word recognition skills (phonetic and structural analysis), vocabulary (root words, prefixes, suffixes), comprehension (punctuation, literal, interpretive, evaluation, appreciative), oral and silent reading, study skills (following directions, alphabetizing, dictionary skills, parts of books, reference locating, organizing, outlining, note taking, report writing, retention), and reading in content areas.
