This booklet compares the Pacesetter English course in English language arts for twelfth-grade students with the "Standards for the English Language Arts," recently published by the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association. The aim of the booklet is to demonstrate the links between the Standards and the goals of Pacesetter and to evaluate the extent to which the Standards and Pacesetter are in concordance. It shows how the thinking behind the Standards can be put into practice in an integrated program of instruction, assessment, and professional development such as Pacesetter. The booklet outlines the six units and related common tasks and then presents the full text of the Course Dimensions that guide instruction and assessment. The booklet then presents each of the 12 Standards accompanied by explanations and illustrations of how specific elements in the Pacesetter English course reflect convergence with that Standard. (RS)
