A School Is a Language Place. Children and Language Series.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
Intended for teachers in Tasminia, this book focuses on the school setting as a place that supports children as language users. The booklet suggests that when setting out to develop a language program teachers need a knowledge of the relationship between child development and language acquisition; an understanding of how the organization of the learning environment can promote language development; and a means of evaluating the effectiveness of the language program. The booklet contains three chapters: Children and Language; Organization of the Learning Environment; and Evaluation of the Language Program. Numerous black and white photographs illustrate the text.
