This curriculum guide for grades 5-8 divides language arts into ten 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 topics are included in most or all of the sections: introduction, related research, goals/objectives, enabling procedures (activities and teaching methods), program description/planning, evaluation, and bibliography. The subject areas (with additional topics in parentheses) are: (1) listening; (2) oral language; (3) drama (organization of a lesson); (4) visual communication (sample units and computer awareness); (5) handwriting (importance, teaching handwriting, legibility, and handwriting methodology); (6) reading and literature (principles of reading, reading in the content areas, individualized reading, oracy and literature, and relationships to writing, speaking, and listening); (7) composing and writing (the writing process and suggested resource books); (8) spelling (spelling curriculum and rules); (9) language structure and usage (definition of terms); and (10) dictionary studies (recommended dictionaries). The final section of the guide provides a sample integrated unit. (DC)
