Golub, Lester S.; And Others
The general purpose of this paper is twofold. One is to survey the research and literature on the learning of oral and written language in the elementary schools. The other is to propose a statement of needs, objectives, and components for an oral and written language program for elementary grade children. The method used for this study consists of five steps: (1) A survey and consensus of knowledge expressed by (a) language scholars and researchers, (b) curriculum specialists, and (c) teachers and other practitioners; (2) A survey of materials and methods presented in current textbooks for teachers and students; (3) A survey of students' and teachers' future needs in school and society; (4) Statements of needs and objectives of an elementary oral and written language program; and (5) A proposal for the components of such a program. The results of each of these steps are presented in this paper. (Author)
