TWO APPROACHES TO TEACHING SYNTAX. INDIANA UNIVERSITY ENGLISH CURRICULUM STUDY SERIES.
BROWN, MARSHALL L.; AND OTHERS
TWO TRANSFORMATIONAL-GENERATIVE APPROACHES TO TEACHING SYNTAX IN JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS ARE PRESENTED. ONE IS FOR USE WITH AVERAGE AND TALENTED STUDENTS IN GRADES 7-9, AND THE OTHER IS FOR SLOW-LEARNING STUDENTS IN GRADES 7-11. A DISCUSSION OF THE FIRST APPROACH IS DIVIDED BY GRADE LEVEL AND INCLUDES AN EXAMINATION OF BASIC SENTENCE PATTERNS, AN EXPLANATION OF THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN FORM AND STRUCTURE WORDS, RULES FOR SENTENCE TRANSFORMATION, AND NUMEROUS EXERCISES. THE PRESENTATION OF THE APPROACH TO TEACHING SYNTAX TO SLOW-LEARNERS PROVIDES AN EXPLANATION OF THE USE OF STUDENT-CONSTRUCTED SENTENCES AND POINTS OUT THE TEACHER'S CONCERN WITH PUNCTUATION, CAPITALIZATION, USAGE, AND SEMANTICS, IN ADDITION TO SYNTAX. THIS GUIDE IS AVAILABLE FROM THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401, $2.95. (RD)
