THE LINGUISTIC APPROACH IN TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE. ELEMENTARY LEVEL.
RIVERA, CARLOS
DUE TO THE PHENOMENON OF "RETROGRESSION IN READING" WHICH OFTEN TAKES PLACE BETWEEN THE GRADES OF TWO AND THREE AND THE UPPER ELEMENTARY GRADES AMONG BILINGUAL CHILDREN, A MORE LONG-RANGE, SYSTEMATIC READING PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. A READING PROGRAM FOR NONENGLISH SPEAKING STUDENTS (SPANISH) SHOULD NOT BE A REMEDIAL PROGRAM, BUT SHOULD BE APPLICABLE TO ALL STUDENTS, BOTH POOR AND GOOD READERS. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IS A PROGRAM THAT TEACHES ALL PHASES OF READING. TO IMPROVE PARENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIPS, THE TEACHER IS ADVISED TO HAVE AT LEAST A BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH. ONE OF THE FIRST TASKS CONFRONTING A TEACHER OF SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILD IS TO SLOW DOWN THE CHILD'S SPEECH RATE. THE USE OF PHONICS IN SPEECH IS STRESSED. ENGLISH CONSTRUCTIONS AND USAGES WITH SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN GENERALLY FIND DIFFICULT ARE GIVEN. SINCE PRESENT READING PROGRAMS FOR NONENGLISH SPEAKING CHILDREN ARE CONSIDERED INADEQUATE, TWENTY UNITS TO BEGIN THE CHILD IN HIS STUDY OF ENGLISH ARE INCLUDED.
