The language arts in the elementary school: a forum for focus by Martha L King( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 37 articles presents various perspectives on the purposes, contents, and methods of teaching the language arts in the elementary school. The primary focus is on developments in the language arts during the 1960s. Many of the authors relate innovations in language arts to more traditional concerns; the editors suggest that the general theme of this collection is that the language arts are concerned less with a stricly content-centered curriculum than with emphasizing the development of people by increasing their understanding of language, literature, and communication skills. The essays are grouped into six sections: (1) a state of the arts review, identifying major current issues and proposing future directions; (2) a discussion of what should be the legitimate emphasis of language study in the curriculum; (3) current developments in spelling and handwriting; (4) creative experession in oral and written composition; (5) the teaching of reading skills as one component in a language arts program; and (6) a discussion of how literature study can serve the child.

Teaching and learning critical aesthetic response to literature : an instructional improvement study in grades K-5 by Patricia J Cianciolo( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to improve the teaching and learning of critical aesthetic response to literature, a 2-year collaborative study involved 20 teachers, 2 university-based researchers, and approximately 300 elementary school students in the Lansing, Michigan, area. The study examined aspects of the teachers' understanding of the theory and their practices pertaining to some crucial issues that affect this approach to literature. The issues examined included: the nature of literature and of critical thinking, critical aesthetic response to literature, and assessment procedures). Major objectives of the study were: (1) to help students become acquainted with all types of literature; (2) to create an environment in which literature is valued and enjoyed for the aesthetic experience it offers; and (3) to create an environment in which literature is valued and enjoyed for the varied and valid uses one can make of it. While all of the teachers taught some aspect of critical aesthetic response to literature, individual teachers chose different kinds of literature and encouraged different aspects of response. Results indicated that: (1) through the study and implementation of questioning techniques and through the activities they chose, the students learned to verbalize more precisely their responses to literature; and (2) critical aesthetic development consists of a very gradual acquisition of insights about the aesthetic aspects of a literary selection. The study concluded that elementary school students, even those in kindergarten and first grade, are quite capable of learning how to respond critically aesthetically to literature. (Six tables of data are included; 21 professional references and a 70-item children's literature bibliography are attached.) (RS)
The study of literature in a fifth-grade classroom : one teacher's perspective by Barbara Quirk( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A descriptive/observational study examined one teacher's approach to teaching literature in a heterogeneous, self-contained fifth-grade classroom in a growing suburban community in southeastern Michigan during one school year. The teacher (with 21 years experience) was selected by the Murray Hill School administrators and was observed once a week for 1.5 hours each time. Data included a teacher interview, conferences before and after classroom observations, field notes, audio tapes of each observed literature lesson, and interviews with and written and graphic response of six students. Results indicated that the teacher: (1) understood and valued the importance of exposing students to a variety of literary genre; (2) wanted students to understand that there were specific criteria and techniques to analyze literature; (3) emphasized in various ways that she thought literature should be valued for the aesthetic experience it offers; (4) often asked the students to engage in creative writing activities; (5) helped students develop collaborative learning skills; and (6) chose reading materials of keen interest to students. However, results also indicated that the teacher did not appear to help students recognize the criteria and techniques for determining the merits of a literary selection, and that the teacher appeared to need assistance in learning about the role that questioning plays in eliciting higher order thinking, especially critical aesthetic response to literature. (A group advertisement for one of the books read and several semantic webs are included; seven professional references and 16 children's literature selections are attached.) (Rs)
