Thinking! Talking! Writing!
Utah System Approach to Individualized Learning Project.
Organized in two parts, this packet provides a rationale for teaching language arts according to a multisensory approach and outlines specific activities for use in the elementary classroom. The first section concentrates on constructing a classroom environment that develops language skills through the use of resources that stimulate thought, talk, and written expression; and through activities, such as organizing collections, that motivate inductive and deductive thinking and promote the application of information and the development of evaluation processes. The second section contains suggestions for classroom activities, including using blank books for writing experiences; developing sensory language; designing pamphlets in content areas; using tri-folds with a picture and questions to stimulate language response; suggesting story starters; presenting study prints, art prints, and photographs for thinking exercises; and offering structured tasks for students to choose from for writing exercises.
