Contributors: Lain G. Ball; Maude G. Brown; James J. Fairbairn; Ralph Lavender; Brian R. Watkins; From the cover: “Language covers every subject in the curriculum. Children who lack literacy skills are held back, educationally, not only in English but right across the board. They are damaged, too, in their ability to form concepts, and frequently in the ability to make and form and keep relationships. This book offers help to teachers in planning work for children in talking, listening, reading, and writing. It gives specific examples of how the curriculum may be organized for the different age ranges, so that language in all its forms may be more readily developed in children. It is a very practical approach, offering advice, suggestions, and guidance for teachers at the beginning of their careers or taking further professional training.”
