Away robin run : a critical description of the teaching of the language arts in the primary schools of Trinidad and Tobago by Lawrence D Carrington( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English language arts program in Trinidad and Tobago is handicapped by several conditions. Overcrowding is a problem and reduces the chances for learning. The syllabus in use is outmoded and evidences little understanding of children's language problems. The primary school program is directed toward the Common Entrance Examination. Observations of particular classes reveal additional problems. Questionnaires answered by teachers provide information on their attitudes and teaching practices. The development of new materials and methodologies is needed. An adequate description of the vernacular and its influence on the children's learning must be prepared and published. Teachers' colleges must begin to provide their students with a knowledge of the linguistic problems of the country and instill in them an attitude of experimentation in their teaching. (Author/VM)
Linguistic exposure of Trinidadian children by Lawrence D Carrington( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great diversity in the linguistic backgrounds of children in Trinidad could be a significant factor in problems in English language learning and teaching. To investigate this possibility, teachers have been completing questionnaires concerning the linguistic background and regular exposure to Hindi, French Creole, Spanish, or Chinese, of some of their pupils. The findings of the survey can have implications for language courses, instructional materials, teacher education, and teaching methods. (Vm)

Preliminary comments on language arts textbooks in use in the primary schools of Trinidad and Tobago by H. E Knight( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document considers the language arts instructional materials in use in the primary schools of Trinidad and Tobago and questions how effectively these materials cater to the development of competence in the English language by children whose vernacular language differs structurally in a fundamental way from Internationally Acceptable English. Problems with specific books are discussed as examples of more general problems. Most of the books used have not been written with the particular situation in mind, and they are unsuited to the purpose, lacking linguistic and cultural relevance for the Trinidadian child. Illustrations, structures, linguistic features, vocabulary, and cultural elements are discussed and improvements are suggested. (Vm)

Acquiring Language in a Creole Setting Theoretical and Methodological Issues by Lawrence D Carrington( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of language acquisition requires that the analyst identify the learner's target and have available a grammatical description of the target. In the case of the Caribbean Creole environment, special caution is required in identifying the learner's target because substantial variation is intrinsic to the input and ambient language. Existing studies of language varieties in the region must not be assumed to provide appropriate descriptions of the input or ambient language for a particular learner. Both the description of the language to be acquired and the account of the process of acquisition must be based on the same corpus produced in the same learning environment by the learner and the participants in his language socialization. The corpus can be enhanced by eliciting from the participants their notion of what the learner is attempting to say and ought to be saying. This procedure is important for providing access not only to notions of grammaticality but also notions of appropriateness. Given the interlock between speech behavior and identity in these settings, attention must be devoted to the acquisition of the ability to manipulate socially linked variants of a variable. (Author)
