English Curriculum Guide 7-12.
Fremont Unified School District, CA.
Intended as a core curriculum that school districts and teachers can build on, this English curriculm guide for grades 7 through 12 has incorporated five curricular strands or expectations for secondary school English classes: (1) reading instruction will continue through the twelfth grade; (2) study and research instruction will connect purposefully with reading, writing, and speaking assignments; (3) writing instruction will include all phases of the writing process; (4) speaking, listening, and performing instruction will occur regularly; and (5) literature and other media will provide the significant content for English instruction. Sections include introduction and philosophy, policies and procedures, responsibility and evaluation, continua for grades 7 through 12, adult and continuation English, and teacher helps. Each grade section provides skill description sheets with accompanying sample lessons and assignments. Among the teacher helps are several questioning techniques, a suggested precollege reading list, a suggested three year SAT vocabulary list, prewriting strategies, revision strategies, a sample student writing progress record, spelling rules, confusing word pairs, and Bloom's taxonomy and levels of questioning.
