Actualizacion linguistica, AL-1 (Current Linguistics, AL-1).
This document, the first in a series called "Actualizacion Linguistica," seeks to establish the bases for testing a new methodology for teaching Spanish to Colombia beginning at the preschool and primary levels. The methodology initially uses a system of "logic blocks" of differing size, color, shape, and weight to devise games designed to develop the child's sense of logic and lead him to more complex mental processes and to abstraction through the observation of concrete objects. The logic games, carried over to the Spanish class, teach the child to use the logical tools necessary for thinking about and organizing speech and provide the child with linguistic knowledge in a systematic way, with the assurance that such knowledge is useful. Examples of learning activities based on this method are also described. A bibliography is included. (VM)
