That children learn to speak so skillfully at a young age has long fascinated adults.Most children virtually master their native tongue even before learning to tie their shoelaces. Theability to acquire language has historically been regarded as a "gift" -- a view given scientificfoundation only in the present century by Noam Chomsky's theory of "universal grammar," which positsan innate knowledge of the principles that structure all languages. In thisdelightful, accessible book, psycholinguist Bénédicte de Boysson-Bardies presents a broad picture oflanguage development, from fetal development to the toddler years, and examines a wide range ofpuzzling questions: How do newborns recognize elements of speech? How do they distinguish them fromnonspeech sounds? How do they organize and analyze them? How do they ultimately come to understandand reproduce these sounds? Finally, how does the ability to communicate through language emerge inchildren? Boysson-Bardies also addresses questions of particular interest to parents, such aswhether one should speak to children in a special way to facilitate language learning and whetherthere is cause to worry when a twenty-month-old child does not yet speak. Although the authorprovides a clear summary of the current state of language acquisition theory, the special appeal ofthe book lies in her research and "dialogue" with her many young subjects.

Although proficiency in vocabulary has long been recognized as basic to reading proficiency, there has been a paucity of research on vocabulary teaching and learning over the last two decades. Recognizing this, the U.S. Department of Education recently sponsored a Focus on Vocabulary conference that attracted the best-known and most active researchers in the vocabulary field. This book is the outgrowth of that conference. It presents scientific evidence from leading research programs that address persistent issues regarding the role of vocabulary in text comprehension. Part I examines how vocabulary is learned; Part II presents instructional interventions that enhance vocabulary; and Part III looks at which words to choose for vocabulary instruction. Other key features of this timely new book include: *Broad Coverage. The book addresses the full range of students populating current classrooms--young children, English Language Learners, and young adolescents. *Issues Focus. By focusing on persistent issues from the perspective of critical school populations, this volume provides a rich, scientific foundation for effective vocabulary instruction and policy. *Author Expertise. Few volumes can boast of a more luminous cast of contributing authors (see table of contents). This book is suitable for anyone (graduate students, in-service reading specialists and curriculum directors, college faculty, and researchers) who deals with vocabulary learning and instruction as a vital component of reading proficiency.

PETER BRYANT & TEREZINHA NUNES The time that it takes children to learn to read varies greatly between different orthographies, as the chapter by Sprenger-Charolles clearly shows, and so do the difficulties that they encounter in learning about their own orthography. Nevertheless most people, who have the chance to learn to read, do in the end read well enough, even though a large number experience some significant difficulties on the way. Most of them eventually become reasonably efficient spellers too, even though they go on make spelling mistakes (at any rate if they are English speakers) for the rest of their lives. So, the majority of humans plainly does have intellectual resources that are needed for reading and writing, but it does not always find these resources easy to marshal. What are these resources? Do any of them have to be acquired? Do different orthographies make quite different demands on the intellect? Do people differ significantly from each other in the strength and accessibility of these resources? If they do, are these differences an important factor in determining children's success in learning to read and write? These are the main questions that the different chapters in this section on Basic Processes set out to answer.

Effective Instruction

The purpose of this book is to share successful instructional and learning processes with educators. The focus is on three types of variables in classroom learning and instruction: (1) active learning time; (2) feedback and corrective procedures; and (3) instructional cues. The literature on the nature of each variable is discussed, and the conditions for successful implementation, the reasons for their powerful effects on learning, and the different ways they can be used are outlined. A section on evaluating instruction examines the roles of classroom observation, rating scales, student questionnaires, content analysis and techniques for self examination. A review of the implications arising from new demands on the educational system cites the classroom climate and the concept of individual differences as major areas that need research. An annotated bibliography of research articles written since 1960 emphasizes the feasibility of implementing the ideas discussed in the book. (FG)

In Nonverbal Learning Disabilities: The Syndrome and the Model, the "white matter" model was designed to encompass the complex manifestations and neurophysiological underpinnings of the NLD syndrome. Now, evidence that bears upon the white matter model has been gathered into a single volume. Building upon his previous work on NLD, Rourke explores the ramifications of NLD in the neuropsychology of learning disabilities and in pediatric neurological disease, disorder, and dysfunction.
