The Language Arts: An Integrated Approach.
Fox, Sharon E.; Allen, Virginia Garibaldi
Intended to help education students develop a theoretical framework that will allow them to make cohesive instructional decisions and plan integrated language arts programs, this guide bridges the gulf between language research and classroom practice, acknowledging that language research is increasingly based upon language produced in such natural settings as the home, nursery school, or classroom. The chapters in the book are divided into three main areas--foundations of the language arts, integration of the language arts, and organization and evaluation of the language arts program. Each of the 11 chapters includes a summary, recommended readings, suggested learning experiences, and references. The chapters discuss the following topics: (1) a rationale for an integrated language arts program, (2) language learning as a powerful force, (3) child development as a basis for instructional decisions, (4) studies in listening and speaking, (5) beginning writing and reading skills, (6) more advanced reading and writing skills, (7) language arts in the content areas, (8) literature-based language extensions, (9) second-language learning and the language arts, (10) program planning and evaluation, and (11) instructional resources.
