Part Two provides the teacher with basic information about language. The articles in Part Three provide a beginning study of such topics as (1) language in the school, (2) sequence of language development, (3) theories of language acquisition, (4) impact of environmental influences on language development and differences, and (5) language pathology. The articles in Part Four provide background information that will promote better understanding of the newer content of elementary school language arts materials and greater ease in reading contemporary professional journals. Part Five contains several articles detailing the basics of interesting children's literature. The articles in Part Six deal with effective listening and oral communication. Part Seven contains articles dealing with the teaching additional communication skills in English. (Author/CK)
Diagnostic teaching of the language arts by Paul Clay Burns( Book )

This book is based on the premise that learning can best be facilitated when the teacher takes a diagnostic view of the instructional process. To further this end, each chapter contains materials, models, and techniques designed to implement diagnostic teaching in the language arts program. The seven chapters are "Foundations for Diagnostic Teaching," which discusses the diagnostic point of view and suggests basic diagnostic teaching procedures; "Language Tests," which analyzes the uses and limitations of standardized language tests and other testing devices; "Listening," which includes an evaluation of listening disabilities and a checklist of problems; "Oral Communication," which discusses diagnosis of pronunciation, articulation, and usage problems; "Written Communication," which evaluates pupil writing; "Spelling," which discusses causes of spelling deficiencies and strategies for treatment; and "Handwriting," which explores different handwriting styles, common errors, and difficulties involved in learning, and includes diagnostic teaching strategies to improve handwriting.
