Integrating the Day through Language Experience.
Schwartz, Judy I.
Language experience can integrate the curriculum through planned and spontaneous activities, regardless of the student's age or level of skill. The components of an integrated day through language experience are the language activities--listening, speaking, writing, and reading. Opportunities for engaging in language range from formal to informal and from reality to fantasy and involve oral and written reporting, choral speaking, creative dramatics, imaginative study writing, and reading and listening to informational and recreational literature. Given the necessary program prerequisites and components, the integrated-day format permits the operation of language in its full communicative function, as a natural part of all learning. The prerequisites are: (1) an atmosphere that prevades the classroom to make it a place where respect for the individual is evident and where there is ample time to experience and learn; and (2) the organization of classroom space to permit individualization of learning options.
