Creative Communication: Teaching the Language Arts.
Logan, Lillian M.; And Others
This professional book is addressed to prospective and experienced teachers of language arts at the elementary school level. The authors argue that creative communication, the goal of the language arts, is attained best when the teacher nurtures each child's creative potential at the same time that he teaches essential linguistic skills. The book discusses principles and teaching strategies involved in the successful teaching of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Emphasis is placed on the interrelatedness of these activities and on the child's need for freedom to experiment as well as his need for direction as he learns language skills. Literature is discussed as a catalyst that can motivate the child to further creativity. The problem of evaluation of students' work is examined from the developmental viewpoint of children's growth in language expression. The authors also suggest a variety of teaching activities to meet the individual differences of children at different developmental levels. An index is included. (Author/DI)
