READING AND WRITING STANDARD ENGLISH.
CRAIG, MYRTLE C.
THE PROBLEM OF HOW TO TEACH PUPILS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS TO READ AND WRITE STANDARD ENGLISH IS DISCUSSED. THE VALUE OF ORAL LANGUAGE AS A MEANS OF ATTAINING READING AND WRITING PROFICIENCY IS SUGGESTED. SUCCESS IN THESE AREAS CAN BE ATTAINED IF (1) THE HOME LANGUAGE OF THE CHILD IS ACCEPTED, (2) THE CHILD IS OFFERED MATERIALS ON HIS LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING AS WELL AS ON HIS LEVEL OF SPEECH, (3) THE CHILD'S WRITING IS ACCEPTED ON THE BASIS OF SUCCESSFUL COMMUNICATION RATHER THAN ON THE BASIS OF MECHANICS, (4) THE CHILD IS IMMERSED IN ORAL SPEECH, (5) THE THOUGHT PROCESS IN SPEECH IS EXPLAINED TO HIM AS THOUGHT-ACTION AND WRITING AS AFTER-THOUGHT. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH CONFERENCE (HONOLULU, NOVEMBER 23-25, 1967). (JM)
