√Storybooks can enrich the students’ learning experiences
√ Stories are motivating, fun and exercise the imagination with the
child’s real world.
√ Listening to stories in class is a shared social experience.
√ Stories allows the teacher to introduce or revise new vocabulary and
sentence structures by exposing the children to language in varied,
memorable and familiar contexts, which will enrich their thinking
and gradually enter their own speech.
√ Stories also “develop the different types of ‘intelligences’.
Ellis and Brewster (1991)
The Four-Pronged Approach to Reading, pioneered by the late Dr. BasilisaManhit of the UP College of Education, is one that aims to develop a genuine love for reading, critical thinking, mastery of the structures of the (Filipino/English) language (now also named GOLD or Oral and Grammar Development), and transfer stage. The philosophical foundations of the pronged long approach are the following: literature-based, holistic, and places emphasis on the process of transfer.
This approach has evolved through years with a consistent use by the teachers of the University of the Philippines Integrated School Kindergarten to Grade II (U.P.I.S. K-2) and with the input of the other members of the faculty of the Reading Education Area of the same university.
