A City-Wide Language Experience Approach to Reading.
Raymond, Dorothy
Described is the language experience approach to reading used in grades K-8 of a small city school system. Largely concept-centered, the program allows the students to work individually or in small groups, insuring a wide variety of learning activities. Constructed without the use of commercially prepared materials, the program encourages students to be self-motivated and self-directed. Main activities at the elementary level include diary or journal writing, reading, creative writing, creative dramatics, and arts and crafts. A sample of electives available to students at the junior high school level are American Folklore, Film and Film Making and Journalism. At all levels the development of reading and language skills are emphasized. (HS)
