English, Journalism, Reading. Curriculum Guide for the Language Arts. Grade 7-12. LA-501-82.
Garber, Darrell H.
Reading, writing, and speaking/listening are integrated in this teacher-developed language arts curriculum guide designed for use in grades 7-12. English and reading for middle/junior high school students is designed to develop academic skills as well as to help students make adjustments to the physical and emotional changes they undergo. English I - IV, for students in grades 9-12, are each divided into four nine-week phases, and each phase includes the courses to be offered, methodology notes, reinforcement ideas, and skills to be covered. The emphasis of this guide is on composition as an almost daily activity. Course titles, brief course descriptions, recommended texts, and activities designed to enhance specific skills are listed for each grade level. There are several special sections: (1) supplementary materials, selected from the large body of materials available in language arts, listed by publisher, catalog number, title, intended grade level, and cost; (2) reading electives which attempt to unify language arts by integrating reading with writing, speaking and listening; (3) professional references for both English and reading; (4) yearbook journalism for students interested in writing, organizing, publishing, and selling the yearbook; and (5) a two-semester writing course for potential professional writers.
