Language Games in the Yakima Valley. Final Report.
Crawford, Jack; And Others
English language development is a major educational problem of children of migrant agricultural workers and of native Indians. A program is described which utilized Teaching Research Language Development materials so they could be taught by teacher aides. The materials, commonly known as "Language Games," were structured in order that the children participating could help to teach one another. By 16 weeks, based on an average of 15 minutes per day, 4 times per week, significant increases in learning performances were noted, and continued use of games is expected to result in even more effective increases in language expression. The process of choosing children and teacher aides to participate in the program is described. The intensive training program with aides working directly with children is reviewed. Methods of program evaluation are also discussed. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (SW)
