Linguistic Communication: Perspectives for Research; Report of the Study Group on Linguistic Communication to the National Institute of Education.
Miller, George A., Ed.
This publication, which is divided into three parts, contains the report of a study group of the National Institute of Education which met to investigate some of the problems of linguistic communication. Part 1 summarizes the general point of view of the group. Part 2 discusses objectives, strategies, current status, and time scale. Part 3 describes research activities which cover the social and developmental context with influences outside the classroom, characteristics of teachers and classroom, characteristics of the reader, influence on reading of dialectal variation, and the processes of reading and writing, especially basic literacy, comprehension of language, writing, and second language learning. The study group recommends a program of research and development on learning and instruction in the elements of linguistic communication--reading, writing, listening, speaking--including interactions among these elements.
