High School Curriculum Guide in English.
Hayward Unified School District, CA.
Developed by teachers to provide a district-wide description of English course content, this curriculum guide is intended for use as a basis for planning instructional activities in a number of areas. The guide consists of four main sections: (1) an introduction, which provides a statement of philosophy, a scope and sequence of skills within English courses, and brief course descriptions; (2) discussions of the writing process, of effective writing programs, and of effective reading programs; (3) a taxonomy of skills sequenced according to the grade level in which each is introduced, taught, reinforced, and maintained; and (4) course descriptions providing course goals, objectives, concepts and skills, and suggested methods, activities, and materials. Appendixes contain descriptions of Bloom's taxonomy, a definition and designation of college preparatory English courses that meet the specifications of the California State University system, a statement of the English preparation necessary for admission to the University of California system, a list of graduation requirements for Hayward High School, lists of materials for precollege reading, lists of materials available from the high school library, and a scoring guide for student written work.
