A Learning Triangle. Language in the Classroom: A Series. 6.
Marshall, Linda; Waddell, Ray
This pamphlet is the sixth 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 outlines a students-helping-students program for individualizing the classroom. The various sections present information on the following topics: the qualities to look for in selecting student helpers; the training program; implementation of the program, including how to begin it and how to use journals and talk to increase understanding; reading and the curriculum; social learning; and questions that arise in implementing the program. Excerpts from student journals and from transcripts of small group discussions are used throughout the pamphlet. (FL)
