Project Success for the SLD Child, Language Arts Guide.
Wayne - Carroll Public Schools, Wayne, NE.
Presented in the language arts teaching guide, developed by Project Success (Nebraska) through a Title III grant for language handicapped elementary level students, are 33 basic lessons stressing phonics, a daily writing program, and ideas for creative writing. Noted are characteristics of students and goals of Project Success. The language program is said to begin simply with names, sounds, and forms of letters and to progress sequentially to more complex structures through a multisensory approach that integrates reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Emphasized are constant review, individualized learning stations, a relaxed classroom environment, and desirable teacher qualities such as sympathetic understanding. Directions for teaching a 1 1/2- to 2-hour daily lesson include aspects such as presenting the new skill; encoding (auditory), decoding (visual), and communicating. Listed for reference use is material such as the formation of letter sounds. Lessons are presented in terms of concepts, behavioral objectives, and procedures for introducing skills, building words, and reading. As an example, lesson 18 on the Magic e Syllable specifies skills such as adding a final e to words like cap and teaching procedures such as telling a story about a magic e that reaches over one consonant and sprinkles magic dust on the vowel to make it long. Listed are 44 language lesson topics such as contractions and letter writing. The daily writing program includes sequential steps such as picture presentation (said to be valuable for students having trouble with paragraphing), suggestions for evaluation and dictionary work, and motivation. Listed for creative writing are 178 topics such as "If I were President". Noted are ways to teach capitalization and punctuation. (MC)
