Talking, Writing and Learning. Language in the Classroom: A Series. 4.
Harrison, Marilyn R. E.
This pamphlet is the fourth in a series of ten stemming from the view that language is central to learning, that teachers can gain insights into their work and into learning by examining the language of the classroom, and that current language theory can be the means to such insights. The pamphlet presents a case study of a third grade student with behavior and language problems. The various sections contain the following: background information about the student, discussions of his classroom behavior and of his language problems, teacher strategies for use in fostering language development, a description of a strategy used to develop the subject's oral language skills through writing, and suggestions for classroom organization to facilitate an individualized approach to learning. Selections from the subject's written work and excerpts from transcripts of classroom interactions are included. An appendix contains a copy of objectives for teacher/child dialogue. (FL)
