Louisiana English Language Arts Content Standards. Bulletin 1963.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
The content standards define what Louisiana students should know and be able to do in the English language arts in order to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in the 21st century. The content standards demonstrate an expanded definition of literacy--one that includes not only knowledge and application of subject matter, but also the ability to be literate technologically and to function as part of a team working individually, collaboratively, and strategically to achieve a common goal. The English language arts (reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visually representing) are interwoven as pervasive themes throughout the document. The content standards are not categorized by strands. Brief descriptions of five foundation skills are provided along with an information literacy model for lifelong learning, and the seven English language arts content standards. Benchmarks for grades K-4, 5-8, and 9-12 are provided for each standard followed by charts presenting the same information. Contains 50 references, a 27-item glossary, and lists of department of education personnel, English language arts content standards team members, and contributors to the information literacy model for lifelong learning.
