The purpose of this thesis is to develop practical and effective instructional design of predictable books by applying the concepts of Whole Language and Shared Reading. The researcher took 6 to 10 years old students, a total of 26 people, at Chinese summer camp in University C as the research object. According to their mind and language development, the researcher selected two predictable books as teaching material, and a sample teaching process was designed, including guidelines for predictable book teaching, lesson plans, power point slides, student work sheets, and rubrics for assessment. The sample teaching process but with different lesson plan was then used to teach two different classes, A and B, and revised according to the theories and observation of teacher. The results of this study are summarized as below: 1. This study purposes criteria of selecting predictable books for children learning Chinese. Ages, language proficiency, and life experiences of children should be considered, as well as print, illustrations, and predictability of predictable books. 2. Teaching by Predictable books is children-centered. Through the interaction of teacher and students and among students themselves, the students are more willing to talk, and can speak more fluently. And they also use the characters of predictable books to call each other after class. It is obviously that predictable books can enhance the oral communication skills and interests of learning. 3. The teaching process of predictable books can be both regular and flexible. It is a fixed framework with elastic content which could be changed by teachers. There are also a sample of teaching plan and questioning samples for future researchers referring to.
