Communication and Learning in the Primary School.
Sealey, L. G. W.; Gibbon, Vivian
The thesis presented is that "learning arises from experience which is absolutely bound up with communication of all kinds." The book deals with ways to translate this view into classroom practice. The chapters, which are subdivided for the British infant and junior schools, cover: (1) Thinking and Learning; (2) Telling by Moving--drama, dance, physical education; (3) Communicating in Terms of Material of All Kinds--textiles, rigid materials, clay, semi-rigid materials; (4) Talking As a Means of Expressing Feelings, Knowledge and Ideas--vocabulary, speech, listening, discussion, tape recorders, puppetry, a second language; (5) The Child Learns to Use the Written or Printed Word--reading, Pitman's Initial Teaching Alphabet, writing; (6) The Interaction of Children and "Special" Materials--number, music, structural materials, teaching machines, science, music; and (7) Organizing the School. A list of books helpful to teachers is appended. (KM)
