Metalinguistics and Early Schooling.
Partridge, Susan
The importance of metalinguistic awareness in early language learning and reading is stressed. It is reported that a number of studies support the contention that many children beginning first grade do not segment language into conventional words in either the auditory or the visual mode. Thus, it is suggested, instructional demands are often beyond the metalinguistic awareness of children. Suggestions are offered for helping children to develop these skills. (Author/SS)
