Language Course for Teacher Training Program in Elementary Education.
Ebbs, John D.
After briefly reviewing the present state of linguistic research, this project concluded that both recent developments in research and increasing educational demands upon all children indicate a need for increased attention to the language education of elementary teachers, especially a broader orientation in language training. Following a discussion of the uses and limitations of traditional grammar in language education, the report suggests a course of study for teachers which would cover aspects of traditional grammar, transformational grammar, structural phonology, methods of linguistic description, psycholinguistics, and dialects. Additional materials include a partially annotated list of references and a list of sources which could be used as textbooks for the components of the language course. (DD)
