Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop an Integrated Language Arts Curriculum for Kindergarten children in Newfoundland and Labrador Schools. -- A curriculum design based upon a particular philosophy has been developed along with specific aims and possibilities for development of an integrated methodology. -- While Language Arts was the central focus of this design, all other curricular learnings and activities were carefully examined as possibilities for the extension of language study. The activity-interest centre concept was interwoven into this framework. -- This organizational plan attempts to translate the notion of integration into practice by presenting a unit of work around a particular theme with specific and detailed plans for a five-day period. Through the integration of a three-dimensional approach involving (1) related and relevant learnings from the various curriculum areas, (2) activities initiated in the various interest centers, and (3) a specific unit centering on a particular theme, certain concepts and, skills were encompassed within the content of Language Arts.
