Small Schools Reading Curriculum, 9-12: Scope, Objectives, Activities, Resources, Monitoring Procedures.
Nelson, JoAnne, 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 9-12. The objectives listed are correlated to the Goals for Washington Common Schools and to broad K-12 reading goals. 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. Grade recommendations for teaching the objectives at the secondary level are very broad, reflecting that courses are often non-graded or that students must enroll in some basic courses to meet competency or graduation requirements. Where applicable, the relatedness of an objective to other curriculum areas is shown. Particular effort has been given to correlating the materials with the areas of Environmental Education and the use of the newspaper in the classroom. Reading scope areas for grades 9-12 include word recognition skills, vocabulary, comprehension, oral and silent reading, reading rate, and reference skills.
