English Language Arts K-12. Interim Guide 1981.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
Sections of this guide deal with an overview of the English language arts K-12 program, organizing for instruction, and evaluation. It is intended to be used as a resource for teachers. The overview section begins with a rationale, major emphases, general student language needs, K-12 learning goals, and changes in emphases that are necessary as the student matures. Charts covering the early, middle, and senior years are then provided to correlate student needs with instructional goals. The overview section concludes with a description of the language development of children, a chart of Piaget's developmental stages, and implications of the program for administrators. The section on organizing for instruction covers integrating the language arts curriculum, balancing the curriculum, meeting individual and group needs, meeting special needs, and setting time allotments. Most of this section is comprised of scope and sequence charts which include general thinking and language goals, program elements, and specific objectives for listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The final section on evaluation describes the purpose, types, and methods of evaluation; record keeping; and the use and abuse of standardized tests. A glossary of education and language arts terms is appended. (DC)
