K-12 English Language Arts Curriculum Framework.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
In accordance with RSA (Revised Statutes Annotated) 193-C relative to the New Hampshire Educational Improvement and Assessment Program, the purpose of this framework is to serve: (1) as the basis for the development of assessment instruments to be administered, statewide, at the end-of-grades 3, 6, and 10; and (2) as a guide for making local decisions about curriculum development and delivery. It establishes educational standards that define what New Hampshire students should know and be able to do in the English language arts. In the framework, five strands serve as the primary organizers: reading; writing; speaking, listening, and viewing; literature; and English language uses. Each strand includes three major components: purpose statements for each of the organizing strands; curriculum standards; and proficiency standards. Contains 30 references. (RS)
