INTRODUCING ENGLISH, AN ORAL PRE-READING PROGRAM FOR SPANISH-SPEAKING PRIMARY PUPILS.
LANCASTER, LOUISE
THIS 28-UNIT ORAL PROGRAM WAS PREPARED AS A GUIDE FOR TEACHERS OF SPANISH-SPEAKING FOUR-, FIVE- AND SIX-YEAR-OLD CHILDREN WHO ARE LEARNING ENGLISH FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT IS ORGANIZED TO GIVE THE CHILDREN SOME UNDERSTANDING AND COMMAND OF SPOKEN ENGLISH BEFORE BEING INTRODUCED TO READING IN ENGLISH. A BASIC SPEAKING VOCABULARY OF FIVE TO SIX HUNDRED WORDS, USED IN MEANINGFUL SENTENCE PATTERNS, IS PRESENTED IN GRADED AND CONTROLLED SEQUENCES. THE AURAL-ORAL (AUDIO-LINGUAL) METHOD WHICH IS FOLLOWED IS EXPLAINED IN THE INTRODUCTION. WHILE THE MATERIAL DOES NOT CONTAIN LINGUISTIC TERMINOLOGY, AND A KNOWLEDGE OF LINGUISTICS ON THE PART OF THE TEACHER IS NOT ASSUMED, THE MATERIAL IS BASED ON RECENT LINGUISTIC RESEARCH AND A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH AND ENGLISH. IN ADDITION TO THE TEXT, WHICH PROVIDES DETAILED, STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS TO THE TEACHER FOR EACH LESSON, A FILE BOX OF 316 PICTURE CARDS AND A SET OF 35 DUPLICATING MASTERS WAS DESIGNED FOR THE COURSE. THIS MATERIAL IS PUBLISHED BY HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY, 2 PARK STREET, BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, 02017. (AM)
