A STUDY TO IDENTIFY THE CONTENT OF LINGUISTICALLY BASED GRAMMAR INSTRUCTION OF A JUNIOR HIGH.
KELLY, RUBY M.
THE WESTPORT PROJECT WAS ORGANIZED TO ACCELERATE THE MOVEMENT TOWARD A DISTANT GOAL, A LINGUISTICALLY BASED ENGLISH CURRICULUM AT THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. THE PRINCIPAL PURPOSE WAS TO COLLECT A SIGNIFICANT BODY OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE LANGUAGE STRUCTURES USED BY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND TO MAKE THIS MATERIAL AVAILABLE TO ANY SCHOOL SYSTEM WHICH SEEKS TO IDENTIFY THE CONTENT OF A LINGUISTICALLY BASED GRAMMAR PROGRAM. INTERESTED TEACHERS MUST DETERMINE THE LANGUAGE FACILITY DISPLAYED BY A STUDENT IN SPEECH AND WRITING SINCE THESE REPRESENT THE SKILLS WHICH HE HAS ALREADY MASTERED AND WHICH ARE AT HIS COMMAND. A COMPARISON OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF SPEECH AND WRITING IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE DATA COLLECTED. TEACHERS SHOULD ABSTRACT FROM RECENT LINGUISTIC MATERIAL THE INFORMATION WHICH CAN CONTRIBUTE MOST TO THEIR ENGLISH PROGRAMS. DISCUSSIONS OF CHARACTERISTICS OF SPEECH AND WRITING, IDENTIFICATION OF LANGUAGE PROBLEMS IN COMPOSITION PROCESS ARE INCLUDED, AS WELL AS A DESCRIPTION OF EXPERIMENTAL LESSONS IN INDUCTIVE TEACHING.
