Composing Aloud: Oral Composition "Communication Skills for the Age of Aquarius."
Monaster, Rebecca
New curriculum emphases and new devices to make language teaching more productive are needed to meet the needs of students who are involved in a new age. The following assumptions should be implicit in developing an oral language program plan: oral language is vital to thinking, reading, and writing; mass media have created a new and different society; the nature of the student being taught is different; the role of the teacher is in need of modification; and new tools and techniques are needed to improve oral language teaching and to increase learning. An oral language program designed to promote awareness and emphasize the usefulness of language in different ways includes: a concentrated emphasis on oral language in specific oral language classes at the elementary and junior high school level; a diffused emphasis on oral language in the language arts classes; and an expanded oral language offering in senior high school English classes.
