A "LINGUISTIC" APPROACH TO BEGINNING READING FOR BILINGUAL CHILDREN.
ROBINETT, RALPH F.
THE BILINGUAL SCHOOL ORGANIZED IN DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, INCORPORATES A LANGUAGE AND READING PROGRAM EMPHASIZING STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS. THE SPECIAL READER SERIES BEING UTILIZED, THE "MIAMI LINGUISTIC READERS" SERIES, HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AROUND TEN MAJOR LINGUISTIC AND PEDAGOGICAL PREMISES. THE MATERIAL MUST DEAL WITH TOPICS INTERESTING TO THE CHILDREN AND REFLECT THEIR LANGUAGE FORMS. THE CHILD SHOULD HAVE AURAL-ORAL CONTROL OF THE MATERIAL HE IS EXPECTED TO READ. THE DEVELOPMENT OF BEGINNING READING MATERIAL SHOULD FOCUS ON THE SKILLS INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF READING. SOUND SYMBOL PRESENTATIONS SHOULD BE IN TERMS OF SPELLING PATTERNS RATHER THAN INDIVIDUAL LETTER SOUNDS. THE GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURE AND VOCABULARY SHOULD BE CONTROLLED, AND THE CHILD SHOULD LEARN TO READ BY STRUCTURES. WRITING EXPERIENCES SHOULD REINFORCE THOSE OF LISTENING, SPEAKING, AND READING. THE MATERIALS SHOULD BE ORGANIZED SO THE LEARNER MAY ACHIEVE SUCCESS AS HE PROGRESSES THROUGH THE MATERIALS. IN A COMPLETE SENSE, THE PROGRAM TEACHES ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE. EACH OF THE PREMISES IS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL WITH REFERENCE MADE TO THE READER SERIES.
