STARTING ENGLISH EARLY--A GUIDE AND COMMENTARY.
MCINTOSH, LOIS
THIS GUIDE AND COMMENTARY DESCRIBES "STARTING ENGLISH EARLY," A 30-MINUTE COLOR FILM BASED ON THE DAILY ACTIVITIES OF SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN WHO MADE UP A DEMONSTRATION CLASS IN ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE OFFERED BY THE NDEA INSTITUTE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT LOS ANGELES DURING THE SUMMER OF 1966. THE PURPOSE OF THE FILM WAS TO DEMONSTRATE TECHNIQUES OF TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE TO CHILDREN OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE. THE LINGUISTIC PRINCIPLES INVOLVED AND THE TEXT AND TEACHER'S NOTES FOR THE FIRST LESSON TAUGHT IN THE FILM ARE PRESENTED IN THIS GUIDE. THE AUTHOR'S SUMMARY POINTS OUT THAT--(1) WHILE BEING BILINGUAL IS AN ASSET, IT IS NOT AS IMPORTANT A TEACHER QUALIFICATION AS BEING WELL-TRAINED IN THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE, (2) CLASSES OF MORE THAN 15 CHILDREN ARE TOO BIG FOR EFFECTIVE LANGUAGE WORK, AND (3) IN SPITE OF VARIATIONS IN THE SIZE AND ATTRACTIVENESS OF THE CLASSROOM, A WELL-TRAINED AND MOTIVATED TEACHER WITH AN ORGANIZED PROGRAM CAN TEACH EFFECTIVELY. AN ANNOTATED LIST OF BOOKS AND PERIODICALS IN THE FIELD OF ENGLISH FOR SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES IS INCLUDED. THE FILM "STARTING ENGLISH EARLY" IS 16MM WITH SOUND, AND SELLS FOR $275.00 PER COPY. RENTAL FEES ARE $12.50 A DAY OR $20.00 FOR THREE DAYS. FOR INFORMATION WRITE TO MISS EVELYN LANE, ACADEMIC COMMUNICATION FACILITIES, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES 90024. (AMM)
