Scope & Sequence
Integrating knowledge and skills...
Language instruction and development must happen in an integrated manner as elements of knowledge interact and build one upon the other. Speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills are the all encompassing activities that use this knowledge base.
In the Johnny Can Spell & Johnny Can Write scope and sequence presented here, the elements of knowledge and skill components have been isolated for the purposes of identification and accountability, not for the purposes of instruction.
This scope and sequence reflects only the elements of knowledge and skill components addressed in Johnny Can Spell & Johnny Can Write. It does not address areas such as comprehension or kinds of writing, e.g., narrative. Therefore, it is not to be considered an all-inclusive language scope and sequence.
In the scope and sequence, grade designations are given with elements of knowledge to indicate that opportunity for instruction and practice are offered at that level. This is not an indicator that mastery is gained or even expected at that level. State standards offer that guideline.
