Oral Language: Expression of Thought. Updated Edition.
The purpose of this publication is to explain how a child learns and how language development is related to motor, emotional, and cognitive development. Following a brief introductory chapter, it presents a chapter on how a child learns, divided into the following categories: motor development; emotional development; language development; the rhythmic and motoric basis of learning; and oral language development, reading readiness, and black or poverty English. The third chapter, which outlines teaching techniques designed to develop oral language in preparation for reading, is divided into sections on specific assessment techniques and suggestions for developmental instruction.
