Vacca, Richard T., Ed.
The Journal of Language Experience, v2 n1 1980
This journal issue contains six articles related to language-centered reading instruction, integrated language arts, and reading comprehension. The first article discusses the language experience approach (LEA) to developing comprehension skills in adult beginning readers. The second article describes examples of uses of LEA in such content areas as English, social studies, science, mathematics, home economics, industrial arts, foreign language, and musit or art, while the third article describes LEA activities for the intermediate and junior high student that emphasize class discussion, collection of words on topics of interest, and individual conferences. The fourth article reaffirms the method of integrated language arts instruction and lists teacher attitudes and objectives that are essential to such instruction, and the fifth article focuses on the parallel and exists between the creative process and LEA and explains the four creative stages of preparation, incubation, illumination, and evaluation. The last article argues for the importance of language games in a reading program and offers guidelines for shaping the development of quality readers. (AEA)
