Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Language experience approach in education; Storytelling ability in children;
Implementing the whole language concept into an instructional program involves creating a supportive learning environment. This environment needs to be rich in content and filled with a whole array of possibilities for engaging in the thinking-language processes, but at the same time needs to be predictable and secure. Within such a classroom structure, children can engage in the functions of language to create their own meaning, thus developing thinking-language abilities and discovering the nature of the language. Retelling stories listened to or read is one of the activities that can nurture thinking-language abilities (Goodman, 1986).
