The English Language in Elementary School Programs.
Baltimore County Public Schools, Towson, MD.
This document presents the rationale and overview of an elementary English language project in which innovative linguistic materials were introduced in the classroom and an in-service teacher training program was provided to prepare teachers to use these materials. Language--its nature and children's use of it--provides the basis for articles dealing with (1) language as a code, words as symbols, and word connotations, including sample lesson plans for grades 4 and 6, (2) the teacher's role in early childhood language development, (3) the structure of the English language--identification of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and derivational suffixes--including sample lesson plans for grades 1, 2, and 5, (4) "standards" in language usage and its application to the improvement of language usage, including sample lesson plans for grades 4 and 6, (5) phoneme-grapheme relationships in the language program, (6) language concepts in an integrated K-6 language-literature-composition program, including lesson plans for reading poetry in grade 6 and for using verbs effectively in grade 4, (7) a description of in-service courses, and (8) new trends in elementary English.
