The area of communication skills includes 38 objectives covering reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Forty-four objectives are presented for the following topics in mathematics: number sentences, number system, place value, fractions, decimals, percents, measurement, graphs, metric system, and calculator. Thirty-two objectives are given for life skills (such as using the help wanted classified section of the newspaper, understanding car insurance, and understanding the terms of a lease/rental agreement). Appended are a listing of instructional materials by curriculum area and publishers' names and addresses. Also appended is a continuous progress report form which lists all the objectives and allows recording of the date introduced, date partially achieved, and the date mastered. (DB)
