Language Arts and the Migrant Child, Diagnosis and Prescription.
Swickard, Sara R.; And Others
Goals, activities, methods, and techniques are suggested in this 1969 document for improving instruction in the language arts for the migrant child. The first of the 3 sections of the book deals with those behavioral goals of particular significance for teachers working with nursery, kindergarten, and beginning first-grade children. The second section emphasizes desirable goals to be attained during initial reading instruction for the first through third grades. A third section concentrates on those language behaviors desirable for effective performance from the fourth through sixth grades. Each listing of goals is accompanied by a group of suggested ways of working toward these goals. A color-coordinated section is included which contains games and activities to facilitate meeting the needs of a child's particular problem. The last section also includes a list of some sounds and language patterns which are difficult for the migrant child for whom English is a second language. (AN)
