K-8 Writing Skills Curriculum.
Skokie School District 68, IL.
In this K-8 writing skills curriculum, developed in Skokie (Illinois), the objectives are presented in a "mastery" format so that student achievement can be assessed. The document begins with a statement of philosophy, and guidelines for teachers to use in implementing the program, and then describes the curriculum format, which focuses on the concepts of introducing, emphasizing, mastering, and reinforcing a skill. Lists of objectives accompany the charts for each of the skills: sentence and paragraphing skills, letter writing skills, oral message skills, descriptive skills, narrative skills, explanatory skills, persuasive skills, and editing and proofreading skills. Each objective is then listed separately, followed by a "writing prompt" or exercise and scoring criteria. The writing prompts in the document are to be used by the teacher as tests following instruction. (EL)
