Burns, Paul C.; Broman, Betty L.
Several features distinguish this textbook which was designed for an elementary language arts program: each chapter is introduced with a set of objectives and performance responses; chapters provide numerous examples of both exploratory and systematic instruction; the special role of literature as a tool as well as a content subject is recognized; written composition focuses heavily on process as well as product; the chapters indicate the interrelatedness of the language arts components and discuss implementation of language arts skills through the various content areas; each chapter presents ways to individualize instruction; and each chapter includes selected references. The fourteen chapters are: "An Introduction To the Language Arts Program,""Children's Language and Language Study,""Language Arts Experiences for Children Five and Under,""Listening,""Oral Composition,""Literature,""Written Composition,""Vocabulary Development and Reference Skills,""Grammar,""Spelling,""Handwriting,""Provisions for Individual Differences,""Classroom Organization and Management," and "Reading."
