Language across the Curriculum. ERIC Digest.
Intended for administrators and policy makers as well as teachers, this digest examines the notion of language across the curriculum, or teaching writing, reading, speaking, and listening as interdependent skills rather than as separate subjects. After defining language across the curriculum, the digest discusses the history and theory of this approach. It then examines the implications of this approach for teaching in terms of faculty training, classroom techniques, and curriculum change. (HTH)
