Language Arts. Suggested Learner Outcomes, Grades 9-12.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
Noting that language skills such as thinking, listening, reading, writing, and speaking are basic to education, this guide for Oklahoma schools contends that school curricula should emphasize the role that language arts play in understanding all subjects, achieving success in life, and in communicating with people. Following a discussion of the philosophy behind the language arts curriculum, the guide presents instructional goals for grades 9 through 12 in the following subject areas: (1) language arts skills; (2) literature; (3) composition; (4) grammar; (5) spelling and vocabulary; (6) handwriting; (7) speech/drama; and (8) journalism (including a journalism skills chart). Preceding the section on speech/drama are scope and sequence charts for literature, composition, grammar, handwriting, listening, and speaking. (SKC)
