This book presents a debate between "reasonable" educators who either claim that there is evidence for the effectiveness of whole language, or who challenge the claim that whole language works across the broad spectrum of learners. The book presents the debate in the form of formal debate resolutions, opening "statements," transcripts of a "face-to-face shoot-out" at a convention of the National Reading Conference in San Antonio, Texas, further written responses, and commentary on the debate. Contents of the book are: "'And the Winner Is...!' The Context of the Debate" (Carl B. Smith); "Call Me Teacher" (Susan Ohanian); "Whole Language and Research: The Case for Caution" (Michael C. McKenna and others); "Moderator's Comments" (Carl B. Smith); "The Answer Is Yes..." (Patrick Shannon); "Unlike Patrick, We Do Accept Reality..." (Michael McKenna); "Who the Hell Are You?" (Susan Ohanian); "Let Us Not Permit Ourselves to Be Forced into Bitterly Polarized Positions..." (Richard Robinson); "Audience Participation" (moderated by Carl B. Smith); "People Who Live in Glass Houses..." (Patrick Shannon); "Emerging Perspectives on Whole Language" (Michael C. McKenna and others); "Whole Language: Now More Than Ever" (Shelley Harwayne); "Is Whole Language 'The Real Thing'? Advertisements and Research in the Debate on Whole Language" (Steven Stahl); "New Questions, Different Inquiries" (Jerome Harste); and "Commentary on the ERIC Whole Language Debate" (Michael Pressley). A selected, annotated bibliography of approximately 1,000 items from the ERIC database concerning whole language is included. (RS)

Resisting the notion that there is a single English language arts curriculum that all schools can or should follow, this book focuses on processes for designing, implementing, and evaluating curriculums suited to the needs of individual schools and students. Part 1 of the book (The English Language Arts Curriculum in the 1990s), provides the theoretical underpinnings for this approach to curriculum. It begins with a historical overview of the evolution of English language arts programs. It then describes the origins of a "new English" that has been emerging over the past 3 decades and outlines its most promising characteristics. Part 2 of the book (Successful Curriculum Development in the English Language Arts), presents current curriculums and patterns of development. One chapter reports a survey of national Centers of Excellence in English in which curriculum makers describe the processes that led to their successful programs. A second chapter presents first-person narratives by four curriculum leaders from around the United States, describing a range of curriculum problems. Part 3 of the book (A Curriculum Developer's Handbook), offers a variety of tasks that individual curriculum developers and curriculum teams can undertake. Chapters discuss an assessment base for English programs, the curriculum framework, development and implementation of an English language arts curriculum, and (re)assessment of the skills and standards of the English language arts program. A postscript discusses the English language arts curriculum of the future. Appendixes include: "The English Coalition Report" by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the Modern Language Association (MLA); "Criteria for Planning and Evaluation English Language Arts Curriculum Guides" by the NCTE; "Evaluation Policy" by the Canadian Council of Teachers of English (CCTE); and a list of survey respondents.

This handbook outlines learning strategies in language arts for children in kindergarten to third grade learning English as a second language (ESL). They are designed for the Whole Language or Natural Approach. Although reading and writing are the key language components emphasized, listening, speaking, drama, and visual arts activities have been included. The key strategies highlighted are dictation, literature in language learning, process writing, themes, and evaluation. An introductory section gives an overview of the method and the strategies used. A section on the organization of strategies into a classroom timetable follows. Separate sections outline activities using the different strategies, and for each activity, general information and implications for ESL students are presented. Lists of trade and professional references are appended. (MSE)
