The amazing thing about completing my Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction is that I get to learn and experience pertinent information for all core courses. My Language Arts Curriculum (1-8) course opened my eyes so much, especially from a cross-curricular perspective. Language Arts is used in every subject. This class challenged me to examine the components that shape language arts and think beyond the science curriculum. Our final exam was to create an ABC book about what we learned and gained from the course.
I was intrigued by the approach my professor took; I wasn’t so thrilled at first because it was time-consuming. However, it caused me to really reflect and acknowledge what this class taught me. This is an awesome idea for a comprehensive exam option for our students. I would recommend it for an honors class (middle school) and high school students.
It includes a term, what it means, why it is important, how and when it can be used, and what language arts component it is apart of.
I encourage you to take a look at this ABC Book and feel free to download it!
