Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The requirement that all schools provide a strong instructional program in language arts ls well recognized by educators. Often curriculum objectives focus on developmental skills. It is important that all students know the rules and mechanics of their language, have the opportunity for practice and feedback, and generate products of their own. All children should be provided the opportunity to stretch their use of language. However, it has been shown that a steady diet of drill and practice from textbooks and workbooks and skills-based instruction can cause boredom, disinterest, impatience and frustration in bright students (Brown & Rogan, 1983; Clark, 1983; Parker, 1989).
