Integrated Language Arts. ERIC Topical Bibliography and Commentary.
Smith, Carl B., Ed.
Most research supports the teaching of language arts in an integrated program. This topical bibliography and commentary addresses: how integrated language arts is carried out by school administrations; how integrated language arts is carried out by the teacher; whether integrated instruction helps improve learning performance in reading and writing; how the skills of phonics, comprehension, spelling, and grammar are developed in an integrated language arts environment; and whether there is room for direct instruction in an integrated language arts classroom. It concludes that as schools study the issue, they will become aware that integration is more than a different method of teaching, it is a philosophical change that will need support from administration, teachers, and parents.
