Developing the Language Arts Curriculum (A Collection of Essays).
Ediger, Marlow
Ranging across the language arts spectrum in the elementary school curriculum, this compilation of 36 essays is divided into eight main sections: (1) issues, theory, and philosophy of a language arts curriculum; (2) reading (includes "Developing the Reading Curriculum,""Determining Reading Levels," and "Reading: Basics versus Problem Solving)"; (3) handwriting; (4) spelling (offers strategies and activities for improving spelling, and the suggestion that spelling can be correlated with other curriculum areas in the school/class setting); (5) linguistics (deals with patterns of sequences, expanding sentences, stress, pitch and juncture, and generating new sentences) and grammar (especially structural grammar); (6) oral communication (subdivided as creative expression in oral communication, and oral communication and the psychology of learning); (7) listening (focuses on diagnosis, the pupil and listening); and (8) writing and composition--the most extensive section (offers, among others, material entitled "Writing Achievement and the Basics,"" The Child and Writing,""Creative Writing," and "Poetry in the Elementary School").
