MIAMI LINGUISTIC READERS, LEVEL TWO. NAT THE RAT, TEACHERS' MANUAL.
ROJAS, PAULINE M.
THE MANUAL DEALS WITH LANGUAGE, READING, AND WRITING ACTIVITIES FOR NONENGLISH SPEAKING AND CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED FIRST GRADE PUPILS. OBJECTIVES ARE TO PROVIDE PRACTICE ON A SEQUENCE OF BASIC FEATURES OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE WHICH THE CHILD MUST MASTER IF HE IS TO LEARN TO UNDERSTAND, SPEAK, READ, AND WRITE STANDARD ENGLISH, AND TO DO THIS IN A WAY THAT MEETS THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF THE GROUP FOR WHICH IT IS DESIGNED. THE COURSE HAS NO SPECIFIC UNITS AS SUCH, BUT IS BASED ON A BOOKLET ENTITLED "NAT THE RAT," A STORY DESIGNED TO TEACH READING AND TO DEVELOP A LOVE OF BOOKS. THE TEACHERS' MANUAL DESCRIBES ACTIVITIES FOR LANGUAGE, READING, AND WRITING PRACTICE. PUPILS ARE SUPPOSED TO PRACTICE LISTENING TO AND SPEAKING THE CONTENT TO BE READ BEFORE THEY READ IT. THE ORAL AND READING PRACTICE IS LATER REINFORCED BY WRITING. LANGUAGE PRACTICE TECHNIQUES ARE DESCRIBED. FIRST A SENTENCE IS MODELED BY THE TEACHER, THEN IT IS REPEATED FIRST BY THE WHOLE GROUP, THEN BY A SMALL GROUP, AND FINALLY BY AN INDIVIDUAL. IN THE NEXT STEP, THE TEACHER SIGNALS, AND FIRST THE WHOLE GROUP, THEN A SMALL GROUP, AND FINALLY AN INDIVIDUAL PRONOUNCES THE SENTENCE WITHOUT A MODEL. THE LAST STAGE OCCURS WHEN THE TEACHER GUIDES INDIVIDUAL PUPILS IN RESPONDING TO COMMUNICATION SITUATIONS. READING AND WRITING TECHNIQUES ARE DEALT WITH IN INDIVIDUAL SECTIONS. RESOURCE MATERIALS ARE--PUPILS' BOOKS, WHICH CORRESPOND TO THE PREPRIMERS, PRIMERS, AND READERS OF OTHER DEVELOPMENTAL READING SERIES, "BIG BOOKS," WHICH PROVIDE CHARTS FOR INDUCING LANGUAGE PRACTICE AND FOR FOCUSING ON READING PROBLEMS NEEDING SPECIAL ATTENTION, SEATWORK BOOKLETS, WHICH PROVIDE WRITING ACTIVITIES TO REINFORCE ORAL EXPRESSION AND READING, AND THE TEACHERS' MANUALS.
