Teaching Reading and Language Arts in the Immersion Classroom: Grades 3-6. 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 techniques, strategies, and special considerations that immersion teachers must think about as they plan for and teach language arts to upper grade elementary students who have been enrolled in immersion programs since kindergarten or Grade 1. 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" in the section "Background Reading," and then view the video program and complete the related activities included in the manual, or the viewer may wish to first watch the video, read the articles, and complete the eight activities in Parts 1 and 2 of the manual. Appendixes include two short stories, definitions of types of discourse, and a list of writing intents. (Contains 24 references.) (VWL)
