Elementary School Language Arts: Selected Readings.
Burns, Paul C.; Schell, Leo M.
The 59 readings in this collection are grouped into eight chapters: (1) introduction, (2) language learning and linguistics, (3) listening and speaking, (4) literature and creative writing, (5) words and their use, (6) spelling and handwriting, (7) curriculum topics and resources, and (8) evaluation of language learnings. Final readings were chosen with particular attention given to writings since 1960 and were organized into categories on the basis of content and the approach of the article. Topics emphasized include applications from the study of language and the 'new' English; influences of cultural variations; creative writing, especially in primary grades; new trends, materials, and resources; and a few controversial topics. Types of articles are explanations, reports of research, how-to-do-it descriptions, historical surveys, exhortations, points of view, and in-depth explorations. Short chapter introductions provide summaries of the main sections, and article introductions offer questions and opposing viewpoints. Selected references (grouped by chapter) and indexes are provided. (LH)
