Target: Writing. A Written Composition Curriculum; Instruction by Objectives, K-12. Fourth Edition.
Lincoln Public Schools, NE.
Designed to coordinate composition instruction between the primary and senior high school years, this curriculum guide presents a system for both the direct teaching of specific composition objectives and the assessment of student achievement and program effectiveness. The first of the guide's five major sections explains the curriculum's scope, purpose, and means of assessment. Divided into primary, intermediate, junior high school, and senior high school units, the next four sections explain grade-appropriate work/study and common writing objectives, describe required and chosen units of study, and list source materials and possible writing activities. They also present advice on helping students take standardized tests. Each section builds on the student skills in informative, expressive, and elicitive writing developed in the previous units. The appendixes offer a series of grids on age-appropriate writing experiences and skills, a glossary of writing terms, a description of how the curriculum was developed, a style guide, and sample student diagnosis records.
