Preparing Reading Materials in Navajo.
Atcitty, Marlene; And Others
Pilot reading materials in the Navaho language have been prepared by a study group of 6 university students in the interest of teaching Navajo children to read their own language first. The 11 products developed were based on the language-control approach although drawings were used to initiate a language-experience approach. In the materials, a loosely controlled sentence approach initiates the reader with a relatively long sentence and thereafter asks him to contend with a single word substitution in the same sentence; also utilized is the traditional additive vocabulary technique. This report contains a discussion of the preparation process in addition to 1- or 2-page descriptions of the pilot materials.
