Educational Priorities for Language Arts Programs: A Comparative Synthesis.
Swander, Alice Jane
To determine the priorities that linguists and educators stress as essential to the development of positive language arts programs, numerous works by selected linguists and educators were read. Letters were also sent to major publishing companies requesting complimentary copies of current elementary language arts textbook series for evaluation. Additional information on leading series was obtained through research at the San Joaquin County Instructional Materials Center in Stockton, California. The research indicated that positive measures are underway in the 1970s to reform language arts instruction. Some of the conclusions presented indicated that linguistic research is commanding a more influential role in the reform of the English curriculum; that the educational priorities synthesized in the research projected are viable priorities for the development of language arts programs; and that English curriculum reform requires on-going improvements in teacher-preparation programs.
