Language in the Cognitive Preschool Model.
Silverman, Charles; And Others
This report concentrates on languages and is part of a working copy being revised for inclusion into a curriculum manual for preschool teachers. In encouraging children to speak, some Do's and Don't's are presented, such as not correcting the grammar or pronunciation of a young child, and not relying on non-verbal gestures in giving instructions. The importance of conversing with a child instead of lecturing, and stimulating him with divergent questions are thought to be of help. Games and activities, having fun with languages, are suggested. The teacher must establish a way to relate to the child by speaking to him in a natural tone. The three chapters are concerned with: I. Encouraging Children to Speak; II. Helping Children Learn To Name, Describe, and Relate Things, People, Places, and Events; and III. Preparing Children to Read and Write. (For Related Documents, see: PS 006 089-093.) (RG)
