Oral and Written Language Development Research: Impact on the Schools. Proceedings from the 1979 and 1980 IMPACT Conferences.
Goodman, Yetta M., Comp.; And Others
The papers in this collection focus on the integration of child language development research into curriculum and instruction, which was the general topic of four conferences held in conjunction with the 1979 and 1980 annual conventions of the International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English. Section one, on child language research, contains five papers that provide up-to-date insights into learning oral as well as written language. Section two, concerning child language in schools, examines language and thinking-focused curriculum development, the interrelationships of oral and written language in the classroom, responses to literature in a school environment, and peer dialogues across the curriculum. Section three, on child language research and teachers, contains a description of an investigation of an inservice program for teachers and a discussion of nine principles of teaching applied within the context of two experimental teacher education programs. Section four offers comments about the four conferences from two people who attended all of them, and section five provides a list of readings for teachers and a bibliography of recent works cited by the contributors to this collection.
