Small Schools Language Arts Curriculum, K-3: 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 that do not have curriculum personnel to comply with Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law, this guide contains language arts curriculum materials for grades K-3. Learning objectives are correlated to the Goals for Washington Common Schools and to broad K-12 language arts 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 language arts curriculum, followed by pages which feature one or more of the objectives and include activities, monitoring procedures, and possible resources to be used in teaching the objectives. Suggested grade placement of the objectives and activities is indicated, and, 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. Language arts scope areas for grades K-3 include handwriting, written expression, letter writing, literature, poetry, creative dramatics, listening, speaking and spelling. (CM)
