The Language Development Project and Oral Communication in School Years 5-8.
Christie, Frances
The national Language Development Project in Australia, an undertaking concerned with informing teachers on matters to do with language, language development, and language and learning, is described in this report. The various sections of the report establish the project's purposes; offer discussions of developments in thinking and research of the 1960s and 1970s that have shaped professional opinion about language and education in Australia, including studies in early childhood language development, language in learning, and language variety; outline the relationship of the Language Development Project to that body of opinion; and analyze possible trends in language development in Australia to which the project might contribute--particularly in oral communication.
