PLANNING FOR THE LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN AND YOUTH.
NEWTON, EUNICE S.
THE VERBAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE FIRST YEARS OF LIFE IS CRUCIAL IN THE LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INDIVIDUAL. THERE IS A CLOSE INTERRELATEDNESS AMONG LANGUAGE ARTS. SPEAKING, WRITING, LISTENING, AND READING PERFORM RECIPROCAL FUNCTIONS IN THE COMMUNICATIVE CYCLE. THEREFORE, THERE IS A NEED TO REINFORCE LANGUAGE ARTS IN ALL GRADES AND IN ALL SUBJECTS. THE CRUX OF THE DISADVANTAGED YOUTH'S PROBLEMS IS HIS VERBAL INEPTNESS RESULTING FROM LITTLE VERBAL ENCOURAGEMENT IN THE HOME. LANGUAGE PROGRAMS FOR THESE CHILDREN SHOULD BEGIN IN NURSERY SCHOOL AND CONTINUE SYSTEMATICALLY THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEARS. SPECIAL EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON READING WITH EXPERIENCING AS A BASIC ACTIVITY. MANY AND VARIED AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS SHOULD BE UTILIZED. THE TEACHER SHOULD SERVE AS AN EXAMPLE AND SEEK TO INVOLVE THE STUDENTS IN THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS. USE SHOULD BE MADE OF PROGRAMED LEARNING MACHINES AND PROGRAMED MATERIALS, TEXTBOOKS, GEARED TO DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN'S EXPERIENCES, AND PEER TEACHING. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE JOURNAL OF NEGRO EDUCATION, VOLUME XXXIV, NUMBER 2, SPRING 1965.
