Linguistics, Language Teaching, and Composition in the Grades.
Ney, James W.
This book contends that systematic oral and written exercises enable students to overcome many difficulties encountered in writing English. The first chapter is a general discussion of the teaching of composition today. The second section describes an experiment in oral composition drills in a seventh-grade class. The third section describes the first part of an experiment in oral exercises and composition improvement in the fourth grade. The fourth section discusses the second part of the experiment in oral exercises and composition improvement in the fourth grade. The fifth section describes an experiment in oral exercises for second graders. The sixth section is a retrospect and also discusses the prospects of the system used in these experiments. The three appendixes, which are the bulk of this book, contain an analysis of variance and the daily lessons for the fourth-grade experiment. (TS)
