Teaching Reading and Language Arts in the Immersion Classroom: Kindergarten-Grade 2. Teacher's Activity Manual.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD. Office of Instruction and Program Development.
The purpose of this manual, which accompanies a video program, is to provide general background information for foreign language teachers who are, or soon will be, teaching in total, partial, or two-way immersion classrooms. Part of a series of video programs, this manual highlights special considerations in teaching language arts in kindergarten through the Grade 2 immersion classroom. The program describes the following phases in teaching beginning immersion students to read: preparing students to learn to read; helping students make a transition to beginning readers; implementing formalized instruction in reading; and teaching the writing process. This teacher's manual and the accompanying video may be used in a variety of ways. The viewer may first wish to read the report of the Commission on Reading "Becoming a Nation of Readers" and a related paper by Donna Gouin in the section "Background Reading," and then view the video program and complete the seven related activities included in the manual, or the viewer may wish to first watch the video, read the articles, and complete the activities in the manual.
