A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, LANGUAGE EXPLORATIONS FOR THE ELEMENTARY GRADES.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
A SEPARATE LANGUAGE MANUAL FOR THE NEBRASKA ELEMENTARY ENGLISH CURRICULUM SUPPLEMENTS THE LANGUAGE-EXPLORATION SECTIONS OF THE UNITS IN GRADES ONE THROUGH SIX. THIS RESOURCE MANUAL PROVIDES AN INTRODUCTION TO MODERN LANGUAGE STUDY AND DESCRIBES ITS APPLICATION TO THE LANGUAGE LEARNING LEVELS OF CHILDREN. BY THE TIME CHILDREN ENTER JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO (1) PERCEIVE ENGLISH AS A WORD-ORDER LANGUAGE, (2) RECOGNIZE ITS SOUND PATTERNS, AND (3) COMPREHEND THE WAYS IN WHICH PUNCTUATION CLARIFIES WRITTEN DISCOURSE. IN ADDITION, THEY SHOULD HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF THE HISTORICAL DIMENSIONS OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY. THE TEACHER CAN BUILD ON THE CHILDREN'S INTUITIVE GRASP OF LANGUAGE FORMS BY OFFERING THEM SELECTED LANGUAGE SAMPLES AND ALLOWING THEM TO DISCOVER INDUCTIVELY THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF LANGUAGE. CHAPTERS ON PHONOLOGY, MORPHOLOGY, FORM CLASSES, SYNTAX, AND THE NATURE OF THE LANGUAGE CONTAIN--(1) AN EXPLANATION OF EACH DIVISION OF LANGUAGE STUDY, (2) A STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES, (3) EXERCISES AND LANGUAGE GAMES APPROPRIATE TO EACH OF THE SIX GRADE LEVELS, AND (4) INDUCTIVE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS. INCLUDED ALSO ARE CHAPTERS ON DICTIONARY SKILLS, AMERICAN DIALECTS, THE HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, AND LANGUAGE USAGE AND STYLE OF SPEAKING. THIS MANUAL IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS, 215 NEBRASKA HALL, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA 68508. (JB)
