Curriculum Guide in Communication Arts for the Elementary School in Listening, Speaking, and Writing: Grade 4.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
The fifth of five volumes, this guide for the fourth grade is an outgrowth of the Curriculum Guide in Reading. The guide provides an outline of skills in the communicative arts of listening, speaking, and writing that support and can be integrated with the skills outlined in the reading guide. The introductory section contains objectives, a description of the organization of the book, and a discussion of the interrelationship of the communication skills. The first section includes units on listening subskills: attentive listening, informational listening, critical listening, and recreational listening. The second section contains units on speaking subskills: the mechanics of speaking, the ability to communicate orally, communication techniques, methods of delivery, and style. The third section presents writing units on fundamental skills, practical writing, and creative writing. Each unit lists (1) the skill to be taught; (2) the subskill, which is stated in behavioral terms and which progresses from the fundamental to the advanced; (3) the objective of the lesson; (4) the teaching/learning strategy, and (5) the criterion for determining mastery of the objectives. The appendixes contain a suggested weekly time distribution for language arts, a language arts checklist for elementary teachers, a Chicago Public Schools handwriting award form, a bibliography, and a teacher evaluation form.
