This curriculum guide for kindergarten through grade four divides language arts into eight subject areas. Each subject area is covered in a separate section; however, the focus of the guide is on providing an integrated curriculum. The following are included in most or all of the sections: introduction, goals/objectives, evaluation, and bibliography. The subject areas (with additional topics in parentheses) are: (1) oral language (language development, functions of language, classroom environment, integration, discussion, informal talk, creative expression, activities, and listening); (2) literature (teacher strategies, sample lessons, storytelling, and book selection); (3) drama (teaching implications); (4) reading (readiness, self-concept, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, word perception skills, oral reading, questioning, organizing for instruction, integration, adapting program to student needs, and suggested resource books); (5) visual communication (teaching strategies); (6) writing (children's writing development, composition, strategies, and sample stories); (7) spelling (spelling development, spelling process, instructional approaches, planning a program without a text, error analysis, and activities); and (8) handwriting (readiness, teaching handwriting, and quality of handwriting). The final chapter provides strategies and activities for integrating the language arts curriculum. (DC)
