McVitty, Walter, Ed.
A collection of articles showing the role played by the Australian Primary English Teaching Association in contributing to the quality of educational thought, this publication is intended to stimulate and challenge discussion on a wide range of educational ideas and issues. The first part deals with half-truths about learning, learning in school, assumptions and theory underlying educational practice, the role of the arts in child development, and the education of the intellectually handicapped child. The second part covers beginning literacy learning; teacher assistance for children who are learning how to spell; infants' (children's) reading books; the teaching of punctuation, spelling, and grammar skills as part of the writing process; help in teaching the writing process; and the procedures of learning. The third part focuses on the following topics: children learning through the media, learning through databases, and learning from television. (EL)
