Intended for use by teachers of kindergarten through grade 10, this curriculum guide is designed to make communication education an integral part of the school program. The philosophy of the guide focuses on the processes of analyzing, formulating a position, and organizing information or ideas into meaningful form, rather than solely on surface features such as literal comprehension in reading, mechanics in writing, and correct speech. It defines curriculum objectives generally for each subject area, and then shows how they are implemented in detailed developmental schedules of expected skill acquisition for each grade level in the following subject areas: reading, literature, writing, speaking and listening, using media, reasoning, handwriting, spelling. These schedules indicate the grade level at which each skill or process is formally introduced, formally reinforced, mastered, and then informally enriched and extended. (JG)
