Learning Curve - Special Issue on Language Learning

'Learning Curve' is a newsletter by the Azim Premji Foundation. October's issue focuses on language learning.

From the newsletter:
This issue is devoted to the theme of language learning - an amazingly wide canvas and our challenge was to bring at least some key facets to readers. These range from the centrality of language to all learning, the uniqueness of the human race and language, the appreciation of how much language a five-year-old child brings into the classroom to how important the reading habit is, the challenges of language learning and inclusivity in as diverse a country and society as India is.
The issue touches upon varied topics : The Reading Disease, Reading and Learning - My Experience in my Village School, Inclusive Classrooms for Children with different Language Learning Needs, Language Development through Story-telling, etc.

The newsletter can be downloaded here and previous issues of the newsletter can also be downloaded.
