A Teacher's Notebook: Language Arts, K-4.
National Association of Independent Schools, Boston, MA.
This document is a collection of questions and topics designed to assist the elementary teacher in understanding the importance and methods of instruction of language. The major premise of the document is as follows: There can be no separation of subject matter into tight compartments because in reality all teachers are teachers of English; language is fundamental to a child's thought processes and growth. The document consists of sections on the following topics: linguistics and the elementary school, the preprimary language program, reading, listening, oral and written expression, sequential objectives in the language arts, and learning problems and diagnostic teaching. Each section is followed by a brief set of references; a list of recommended references for a faculty library serves as an appendix. (JA)
