Language Arts Programs for Disadvantaged Children in Secondary Schools.
To meet the sociological, psychological, and linguistic needs of disadvantaged children in teaching the language arts, both special teacher preparation--involving field experiences and mastery of the subject matter as well as teaching strategies--and effective language programs are necessary. Various teaching methods and materials have met with adequate success in stimulating these children to listen, to increase their visual perception, to verbalize, to read orally and silently, to think logically and critically, and to write. (A brief bibliography is provided.) (JMC)
