Recent Trends in the Language Arts.
Ediger, Marlow
Teachers need to stay abreast of the latest trends in the language arts to offer an updated curriculum. The language arts areas are vital in each academic discipline and integrate well with diverse subject matter areas. Some common trends when reading the literature on teaching the language arts are: portfolios; journaling; computerized reading programs; time for pupil reflection on what has been learned; holism in reading instruction; writing using invented spelling; emphasis on constructivism as a philosophy of instruction; importance of scientific research to ascertain good teaching practices; pupils' learning by discovery; cooperative learning; and emphasis on integration of content.
