Literacy for ALL Students: The Rhode Island English Language Arts Framework.
Rhode Island State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Providence.
This framework is designed to serve as a general map for the development of English language arts curricula by schools, school districts, or collaboratives. It is not a curriculum guide. Rather, it provides a structure that local agencies can employ in planning curriculum and instruction tailored to their own needs and circumstances. This framework outlines the English language arts standards all Rhode Island students should meet in order to communicate effectively, make decisions, solve social and work-related problems, and continue learning throughout their lives. After an introduction, sections of the framework are: (1) Critical Beliefs about English Language Arts; (2) Vision Statement; (3) The Rhode Island Standards; (4) Assessment; (5) Professional Development; and (6) Evaluation of Existing Programs. (Contains a 27-item glossary; names and addresses of 14 professional organizations; and an 88-item list of annotated references. An appendix contains a report on developing the common core of learning goals.) (RS)
