Language-Through-Literature; A Literary Language/Language Arts Program for Bilingual Education, ESL and Other Activities in Early Childhood. Books 1 and 2.
King, Paul; King, Eva
This language-through-literature program is designed to be used as a native language program (language arts/reading readiness), as a second language program, or as a combined native and second language program in early childhood education. Sequentially developed over the year and within each unit, the program is subdivided into 14 units of about two weeks duration each. Each daily lesson is 15 to 20 minutes long and is planned for maximum participation by children and a high degree of individualization. The two volumes include 130 lessons focused around 12 selections of childhood literature, 5 lessons of language arts activities for special occasions such as holidays, and about 15 review lessons. The make-up of each story unit provides an introduction outlining the rationale and aims of the unit; suggestions pertaining to the particular unit, such as illustrations, sound effects, and realia; the text of the story and the text and music of the related songs and games in English, Spanish, and Chinese, with samples in French, German, Japanese, and Portuguese; daily lesson plans providing the structure necessary for language development and maximum freedom for the teacher; a set of slides; and a set of master tapes in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
