Small Schools Language Arts Curriculum, 9-12: Literature. 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 without curriculum personnel to comply with Washington's Student Learning Objectives Law, this guide contains the literature component of the language arts curriculum materials for grades 9-12. Learning objectives are correlated to 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 materials to meet their own educational programs. The format consists of a sequential list of student learning objectives related to the study of literature, followed by pages which feature one or more objectives and include activities, monitoring procedures, and possible resources used in teaching. 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. Specific areas of literature covered include literary genres (novel, short story, myths, legends, folktales, parables, tall tales, drama, biography, essay, poetry); thematic, historical and cultural approaches; analysis of literature; and personal application/relevance.
