Slithery snakes and other aids to children's writing by Walter T Petty( Book )

7 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based upon the conviction that children can be taught many of the aspects of writing unique to the preparation of professional writers, this book offers ideas for the teaching of creative writing to children. "Creative" writing is defined and its values for children are discussed. Specific suggestions to promote imaginative writing are proposed in ensuing sections: (1) preparation for the writing experience--the classroom environment, the teacher's personality, the input of experiences and ideas, and writing opportunities, (2) materials to stimulate children to translate experience into expression--topic assignments, "beginning phrases," images, objects, and pictures, (3) components of composition, (4) figures of speech and rhythmic language patterns, (5) methods for revitalizing writing projects, and (6) evaluation techniques for measuring goals, standards, and results of the writing program. Included are examples of student writing and a sample writing lesson based on a literature selection. (Jb)

The state of the knowledge about the teaching of vocabulary by Walter T Petty( Book )

5 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on the teaching of vocabulary was collected, and the validity of such information was examined to identify successful applications of the teaching of vocabulary in schools. Sources bearing on the subject of this study were investigated in detail. The initial surveying and report reading led to the securing of 80 studies that were particularly pertinent to this project. The search was limited to studies dealing directly with pedogogical method, with the teaching of vocabulary as opposed to the acquiring of vocabulary by native speakers of the language. The report also included discussions on an overview of vocabulary teaching, a review of selected studies, linguistic considerations, and research design. The investigators reluctantly concluded from the sources reviewed that "the teaching profession seems to know little of substance about the teaching of vocabulary." They credit the studies with showing that some teaching effort causes students to learn vocabulary more successfully than does no teaching effort, but state they have not demonstrated to the satisfaction of the investigators that any one particular method is better than any other. It was recommended that future research take psycholinguistics into account for research clues in the study of methodology. (Al)
