Teaching Reading as a Language Experience. Second Edition.
Hall, MaryAnne
The central focus of this second edition is the same as that of the first edition: to describe the language-experience approach and to identify instructional practices which can be followed to teach reading with this approach. In addition, the volume expands the theoretical foundations of language-experience communication, extends the instructional suggestions, and gives greater attention to language-experience activities prior to beginning reading. The first two chapters explore the theoretical background of the language-experience approach and its relationship to the total elementary reading-and-language curriculum, while the last seven chapters deal with the practical implementation of the approach in the classroom and discuss experience stories, creative writing, vocabulary development, literature experiences, and the teaching of specific prereading skills and reading skills. An index is provided. (JM)
