English Language Arts: Standard Course of Study and Grade Level Competencies, K-12.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Instructional Services.
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study aims to guarantee that all students have equal access to education. This revised North Carolina Standard Course of Study for English Language Arts is intended as a flexible guide to instruction, emphasizing what students should know and be able to do as they progress through various levels of proficiency. The revised curriculum guide focuses on themes and concepts rather than isolated facts. It emphasizes thinking skills and problem solving more than the memorization and recall of information and is based on recent research on how students learn. It promotes integration (as a curriculum implementation strategy) through the identification of common skills and processes. The guide is divided into the following sections: Introduction (Foreword; Acknowledgments; Preface; Outcomes; Purpose; Philosophy; Program Description); Grade Level Curriculum (K-2 Grade Level Goals and Objectives; 3-5 Grade-Level Goals and Objectives; 6-8 Grade-Level Goals and Objectives; 9-12 Grade-Level Goals and Objectives); and Appendices (A--Information on Beginning Reading Instruction; B--Grade Span Continuums: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12; C--Strand Continuums: Written Language: Reading; Written Language: Writing; Oral Language; Other Media/Technology; D--Content of a Reading and Literature Program K-12; and E--Glossary).
