Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The process of instructional development was engaged in to extend the literature base, representative of different genres, and to integrate the language arts with the established science curriculum. The unit on rain and water for grades one and two was the focus of the project. Learning centers were developed to enrich the learning environment. They will provide experiences with quality literature works and many options for expressive activity which will allow children to be more in control of their learning. The major goal was to capitalize on the commonness of the processes in the language arts and science areas to nurture children's thinking-language abilities.
