Teaching the Integrated Language Arts.
Templeton, Shane
Based on the premise that elementary students must be engaged in frequent reading, writing, and speaking throughout all areas of an integrated curriculum, this book is intended for a first course in language arts for preservice teachers. The book can also be used for courses in which reading and language arts theory and methods are combined. The book includes a number of features to help students: focusing questions at the beginning of each chapter address major concepts that students should acquire; classroom examples illustrate teaching in action; annotated bibliographies appear directly within chapters and list children's literature and professional resources; and "expand your teaching repertoire" lists provide in-depth walk-throughs of instructional strategies and activities. Chapters in the book are: (1) The Language Arts: Content and Context; (2) Thought and Language; (3) Our Language Heritage; (4) Classroom Organization and Management; (5) The Teaching of Listening, Speaking, and Creative Dramatics; (6) The Processes and Development of Reading and Writing; (7) The Teaching of Writing; (8) The Teaching of Reading; (9) Responding to Literature through Reading and Writing; (10) The Teaching of Vocabulary and Spelling; (11) The Teaching of Grammar and Handwriting; (12) Assessment and Evaluation of Students' Instructional Needs; and (13) Diversity in the Language Arts Classroom. Appendixes include a list of frequently occurring affixes and word stems; scopes and sequences for grammatical elements, elements of usage, and mechanics; and a list of recommended computer software for the language arts.
