Language Arts Scope and Sequence of Skills, Grades K-12.
Bellingham Public Schools, WA.
The scope and sequence of oral and written communication skills in this kindergarten through grade 12 language arts curriculum guide are organized in three ways: (1) as a total overview of all skills at all levels, (2) as a summary of each skill with grade level designations for attention, and (3) as checklists for each grade level to aid instructional planning and evaluation. The guide lists skills for each grade level and provides a letter system to identify the teacher's instructional responsibilities. The letters are I, R, A and C and are used as follows: "I"--the skill should be formally introduced; "R"--the specific skills have been introduced previously, but reteaching is necessary for reinforcement; "A"--the majority of students will demonstrate competence in that skill by the end of the year; and "C"--the majority of students have attained competence and should find no need for additional formal instruction. An extensive appendix provides assistance for teaching the various language arts, a glossary, models for selected lessons, suggestions for parents, and a bibliography for elementary, middle school, and high school levels.
