Language Experience Approach. TECHNIQUES.
Lifelong Learning, v7 n1 p29-30 Sep 1983
The purpose of this document is to provide a step-by-step outline of the language experience approach. It first explains this technique for teaching both words and sentences to beginning readers. Steps are outlined first for teaching words, then for teaching sentences. What to do and what to say is suggested for each step. Teaching words includes such steps as learner selection of a picture, selection of a word, repeated pronunciation of that word, random recall of letters, student printing of the word, combination of picture and word, and, throughout, repeated recall and pronunciation of the word. The steps in teaching sentences are similar: learner selection of a picture, selection of a sentence from student description, repeated pronunciation of the sentence, determination of a title for the story, pronunciation of the title, random recall of letters, recall of the title and story, student printing of the story, and, throughout, repeated recall and pronunciation. These suggestions are offered for instruction: review of word and sentences from previous lessons at beginning of each lesson and encouragement of student to practice at home. (YLB)
