First, this book examines and reflects upon the Language Experience Approach (LEA) as an educational approach, reviewing its history and offering different perspectives. Second, it provides practical classroom applications for early childhood, primary, and middle school teachers and learners. Finally, the book helps to understand the purposes of language experience and how far one may take the process. Classroom teachers and reading specialists describe strategies in use in a variety of classroom settings and describe ways to integrate current assessment techniques with LEA.The book is divided into five major sections. In the first section, the authors conceptualize language experience and examine its historical evolution. In the second and third sections, the authors provide practical classroom applications for early childhood, primary, and middle school teachers and learners. Some examples include a scrapbook project, the use of nursery rhymes, the writing and telling of family folklore stories, and methods through which to develop a voice through writing. In the fourth section, the authors explore sensible language experience processes and scenarios that meet the needs of special learners (ESL, bilingual, learning disabled). In the final section, the authors examine the big picture of education, consider the perpetually swinging pendulum of approaches, and provide insight into language experience as an enduring and evolving approach.For pre-service and in-service teachers.UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN 3 9015 04750 4827 Teachers of beginning readers, role, 45 as builders of learning ... 205f primary literacy instruction and, 102-103 Theater presentations, 1 97 Thematic instruction, for ESL students, 237-247. ... centers, 184-186 The Winston Bask Readers Communication Program, 29 Woodward, V.
