Motivational Strategies for Teaching Language Arts: A Resource, K-12.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
This resource material, written by Georgia teachers and field tested statewide, provides 45 strategies--or motivational activities--to use as supplemental materials when students have difficulty mastering language arts skills. The strategies are listed alphabetically for easy reference and are presented as alternative ways to reinforce skills--specifically listening, reading, speaking, and writing--for unmotivated low-achievers. A step-by-step process for matching each strategy to specific skills is included in the section, "How to Use This Material." Practitioners are encouraged to adapt the strategies to the needs of specific students--especially those who have little or no facility with the printed word. Appendix A summarizes the language arts section of "Essential Skills for Georgia Schools"; Appendix B lists specific language arts concepts and skills and indicates in which grades they should be mastered; Appendix C contains Georgia high school graduation requirements; Appendix D is a statement on Standards for Basic Skills Writing Programs prepared by the National Council of Teachers of English. A four-page bibliography concludes the document. (KC)
