Visual metaphors explaining the complex language system and its relationship to language arts.
by Rita Cevasco and Tracy Molitors
The Language Tree illustrates the complexity of text, as well as the systems of language used when reading and writing. This visual metaphor represents much that our brains manage when decoding (reading) and encoding (writing), both above and below the surface of text.
The Intentional Language Tree represents intentional copywork and dictation and its relationship to language arts. It includes the skills in reading and writing that must be practiced and then consolidated in original writing and editing.
