Smith, James A.
Various teaching methods designed to creatively communicate language arts concepts in the elementary grades are discussed in this book.

Among the subjects discussed are communication concepts, language acquisition, making experiences into adventures that can be used in creatively teaching language arts, listening skills, oral expression, reading, children's literature, creative writing, handwriting, spelling, grammar, composition, and teaching the disadvantaged child. Each chapter includes a selected bibliography. An appendix provides a list of characteristics of creative children, and an index is also included. (DI)
