English for Children of the Global Village.
Lamb, Paul; And Others
This book provides a background guide to the creative teaching of integrated English in the contemporary primary school. Part 1 suggests that everything done in the primary school is part of an integrated language program, but that some classification is desirable so that important aspects are not neglected. Parts 2, 3, and 4 look at the special needs of the major areas of speaking, listening, writing, and reading. Part 5 combines these areas within the context of the mass media of communication. Within each section practical and creative suggestions to stimulate pupils' interest and discussions are provided under three headings: background, application in the classroom, and the atypical child. Included are such topics as speaking and thinking, the nature of communication, language and culture, handwriting in perspective, testing, development of vocabulary, expressive writing, learning to write a story, teaching the writing of poetry, dyslexia, the retarded reader, children and stories, and children and the mass media.
