Understanding Language: A Primer for the Language Arts Teacher.
Malmstrom, Jean
This volume aims to bridge the gap between language arts teaching and linguistic theory. Part one discusses selected aspects of linguistics that are relevant to language arts teaching: the acquisition and development of language during childhood; the English sound system and its relation to spellings and meanings; traditional, structural, and transformational grammars; the history of the English language; and dialects, dictionaries, and usage. Part two explains how teachers can apply linguistic theory to instruction in reading, literature, and writing. A language arts textbook evaluation instrument, an annotated bibliography of references, and an index complete the volume. (KS)
