Recommended English Language Arts Curriculum Guides, K-12.
Springer, Imogene, Ed.
The first half of this booklet presents an annotated list of curriculum guides recommended by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Committee to Evaluate Curriculum Guidelines and Competency Requirements. The curriculum guides represent a variety of sample frameworks, units, and lesson plans intended for reference use by schools and agencies in the process of developing or revising a curriculum. Grouped according to the year in which the guides were recommended (1980, 1981, and 1982), each annotation provides information on grade level, content, aims and objectives, and how to obtain the guide. The second half of the booklet contains a statement of criteria for planning and evaluation of English language arts curriculum guides. The evaluation instrument was designed to apply to many different content emphases within the field of English language studies, as well as to organization, methodology, language versatility, and the learning process. Criteria are organized under the headings of philosophy, policies and procedure, objectives, organization, process as content, language, composition media, reading and literature, evaluation, and design.
