Relationship between school-community coordinating procedures and reading achievement by Eugene Litwak( )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship of the school and community to reading achievement was studied by application of "a balance theory of coordination." Interlocking surveys were conducted by administering questionnaires and interviews to a sample of 4,402 people, consisting of children from 18 elementary schools, their parents, their neighbors, and school personnel and teachers. The areas under study included (1) the neighborhood and the family as primary community groups, (2) school-community linkage mechanisms, and (3) bureaucratic organizations (schools) and goal achievement. A summary of major points showed that primary groups, bureaucratic structures, and their linkages must be taken into account if one is to understand the way school-community contact might affect the children's academic performance.

Linguistics and the pragmatics of language use : what you knowwhen you know a language ... and what else you know by Georgia M Green( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the nature of the relationship between grammar and pragmatics--specifically, between the rules of a language and the principles for using language. It argues that knowledge of language itself plays a small, primarily enabling part in people's ability to communicate effectively and that a large share of communicative competence is the ability to infer a speaker's plans, goals, and purposes from his or her utterances and to plan and execute speech in such a way that such inferences are most efficiently made. The paper demonstrates, first abstractly, then with an extended example, the complexity of the choices involved in making a simple hypothethical utterance. Next, it describes how certain kinds of nonlinguistic knowledge must be involved in making these choices. It also characterizes three kinds of linguistic knowledge: (1) knowledge about language proper (grammar), (2) knowledge about the use of particular forms, and (3) knowledge about communicating. Finally, it discusses some of the implications of this characterization. (FL)
Organization, goals, and comprehensibility in narratives : newswriting, a case study by Georgia M Green( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report compares a typical newspaper account of an event with other possible ways of narrating the event. It argues that journlists' beliefs about the appropriate format, style, and content for a news story work in concert to obscure the structure of the story and the relations among subparts, and thus serve to thwart their presumed goal in writing: providing an account of events that will be easily readable by an ordinary person. The report concludes that there are clear counterparts to editors standards for the format and style appropriate to books intended for beginning readers, and hypothesizes that children who are exposed primarily to texts written to conform to these standards (short sentences, no paragraphing, relations inexplicit between events recounted) may fail to become good readers because they do not learn to expect connection among ideas, and frequently fail to see it, even in better-written texts.
