National Migrant Education Program: Oral Language Skills--English (Destrezas de Lenguage Oral--Espanol).
Used as an integral part of the migrant student skills system operated by the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS), the oral language skills list contains a catalog of skills typical of the K-12 grade range. This catalog includes a sample of the MSRTS transmittal record which permits teachers to report the skills being worked on at the time of a student's withdrawal. Published in English and Spanish, the document defines terminology used for the MSRTS oral language skills list: areas, topics, subtopics, and skills. It includes directions for recording oral language development in listening and speaking in the following areas: (1) listening comprehension, which covers the topics of oral directions, recall, and relationships; (2) critical listening, which presents evaluation as a topic; (3) personal listening, which includes the topic of self-selected creative listening; (4) oral expression, which covers the topics of functional communication and creative communication; and (5) vocabulary development, which includes basic vocabulary and expanded vocabulary topics. The list also includes suggested uses of MSRTS Oral Language Records for teachers wishing to develop a child's oral language program. (JD)
