Talk and the Teacher of English: Use of Oral Language in the High School.
Nowak, Joan
Talk, the foundation stone upon which all development of language is built, provides the basis for literary interpretation and thus has important repercussions in all the areas of reading and writing. Various activities can give high school students the opportunity to talk and to learn from the expression of others. Group discussion offers students chances for self-discovery and for improving argumentative and reasoning skills. Creative drama and role playing can be a form of practice in living, serve as releases from tension and fears, and provide an impetus to the development of the imagination. Talk plays an important part in adding vitality to literature study so that students explore both the author's ability to present experience meaningfully and their own personal experiences in a similar area.
