The Vital Approach. Comment on the Teaching of English to Pupils Between the Ages of 8 and 15. Second Edition.
Mattam, Donald
A comment on the teaching of English to students between the ages of 8 and 15, this book contains sections which revolve around the "vital approach"--the introduction of a central theme through the children's own interests, local events, or the creation of a situation that will call for practice of the English skills. Sections are given to an explanation of the vital approach, written expression, the mechanics of English, oral expression, the poetry lesson, drama in the classroom, reading for pleasure, reading for information, and school broadcasts, films, and examinations. Each section is followed by an appendix which provides suggestions for the initial planning and implementation of the skill discussed. (HOD)
