Language Arts Curriculum Guide.
Merrimack School District, NH.
Created by the professional educators of the Merrimack School District (New Hampshire), this curriculum guide addresses the language arts in grades Readiness through 5, and in high school (freshman through senior). The guide begins with a foreword, an overview of the program, and a philosophy of each of the five major component areas of instruction (listening, speaking, reading, writing, and study/reference skills). An elementary language arts global curriculum map follows, identifying in chart form and in instructional sequence (specifying grade level for introduction, review and reinforcement, and mastery) all of the objectives of the Language Arts program for grades Readiness through 5 in the major areas of instruction. The guide subdivides freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior high school English into four levels each, with each level containing a course description, general student objectives, and a bibliography. A vocabulary list and an etymology list are at the end of each year's section. The guide concludes with creative writing and speech communication guidelines, both at level 3, including a course description, basic course outline, activities, method of student evaluation, general student objectives, and bibliography.
