Implementation of a Whole Language Approach to Literacy Acquisition.
Freeman, Ruth H.
This paper describes a comprehensive first grade language curriculum which views the acquisition of literacy as a whole language process. The paper explains how to configure program elements to provide direct instruction, time-on-task, and self-directed learning. The manner, timing, method of instruction, and specifics of the contribution of each component to the program are explained in detail. The methodology of instruction, materials used, and techniques of classroom management which facilitate and support instruction are discussed. Secondary program elements, including projects and units of study, which complete the overall language curriculum, are presented. The paper includes excerpts from the children's work to illustrate the methodology and results. (RS)
