As an annotated list of recommended English language arts curriculum guides, this booklet is designed to facilitate sound curriculum planning and provide models for schools that are reviewing their programs and need a variety of sample frameworks, units, and lesson plans. The first section presents the guides, arranged by the year in which they were recommended (1979, 1980, and 1981). Each annotation provides the following information: the grade levels involved; a description of the content, aims, and objectives; and information on obtaining the guide. The second section of the booklet offers criteria for planning and evaluating English language arts curriculum guides. Designed to apply to many different content emphases within the field of English language arts, the criteria are organized under the headings of philosophy, policies and procedures, objectives, organization, process as content, language, composition, media, reading and literature, evaluation, and design.
