As support for increased accountability of our schools continues to grow, linking curriculum to state-established standards has been identified as one of the most effective ways to improve the quality of education for students. Now, school and district-level administrators have a comprehensive, easy-to-use tool to assist in the development of K-12 language-arts curriculum that reflects an adherence to performance-based standards at the state and national levels. Grade by grade, Standards-Based K-12 Language Arts Curriculum provides both an instructional guide and a process approach to improving language-arts curriculum. It presents standards for each language arts strand--reading/literature, speaking/listening, and writing--in an easy-to-follow outline format. Both standards and skills are identified for each grade, to help you develop and communicate your own definitions of what is to be expected from students and educators. In addition, Scope and Sequence charts and other materials in the Appendix serve as useful aids in the implementation and assessment of effective language arts curriculum. For school- and district-level administrators.
