This handbook is designed to provide general goals for evaluating the language arts programs at any level from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. The general and specific objectives used are based on those recognized by the National Council of Teachers of English to reflect basic skills. The guide is intended to be a flexible tool for improving existing programs, providing continuity throughout a system, and ensuring that each school has a sense of direction. The major section presents a checklist that evaluates the current program according to its general and specific goals. A chart provides a method for comparing the self-appraisal scores with the possible scores. Additional sections help educators develop a philosophy and rationale for the language arts program; examine the student outcomes expected; compile listings of the skills and concepts taught in all courses; list resources available to all teachers; list the needs and recommendations that have become apparent during the evaluation; develop a checklist of essential skills for all levels of the program; and develop course descriptions.
