Developing Power and Expressiveness in the Language Learning Process
by Gordon C. Brossell - 1977
The process of language learning and some central strategies for promoting it in the classroom are the subjects of this chapter. The chapter will relate the primary process of language learning and the secondary process of language education in terms of natural human growth and will discuss that growth in terms of developmental stages. It will explore the organization of language education and set forth some major procedures and sequences for developing linguistic power and expressiveness. Following a consideration of talk and small-group process, two fundamental classroom activities, it will conclude with a discussion of the most significant language learning modes--drama, reading and responding to literature, and writing.
