Chicago Board of Education, IL. Dept. of Curriculum.
A teaching guide for teachers of language arts for native Spanish-speaking primary school students in the Chicago public schools consists of four sections and appendices. Part I introduces the concepts of the language arts program, its behavioral objectives, suggestions for teachers, and notes on the characteristics of students of this age group. Part II outlines the development of listening and speaking skills and five examples of related student activities. Part III discusses aspects of reading instruction: an eclectic approach, teaching the association of sound with letters, word-referent correspondence, a suggested plan to make reading automatic, and orthography. Five sample activities are also presented. Part IV addresses writing instruction and the development of an understanding of grammar, and suggests two activities. An alphabet with letter names, a vocabulary list, notes on language irregularities, and a bibliography are appended. The text is entirely in Spanish. (MSE)
