Language Experience Integration into the Primary Classroom.
An annotated bibliography of materials on the language experience approach to reading instruction, prepared as part of a study to determine the effects of and methods for implementing this approach in primary classrooms, comprises the major portion of this document. The bibliography's 63 annotations are arranged in four categories: (1) the ideology, mechanics, rationale, and limitations of the language experience approach; (2) the benefits to the students, as concluded from the research studies that indicate the benefits to students involved in a language experience approach program; (3) the teacher's role in program development, teaching atmosphere, and classroom arrangement within the context of the language experience approach; and (4) the methods and bibliographic materials used to integrate the language experience approach in primary classrooms. Following the annotated bibliography, the document contains a review essay on the contents of the surveyed materials, the four conclusions reached as a result of the study, a list of seven recommendations based on the literature review, and a list of the materials--alphabetically by author.
