THE ROLE OF THE MONITOR IN THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY.
PROBYN, H.E.
THE COMPLEMENTARY FUNCTIONS OF TEACHER AND LANGUAGE LABORATORY ARE OUTLINED, AND THE TEACHER'S ROLE AS MONITOR (LISTENING IN ON STUDENTS' WORK) IS DEFINED. INTERFERING, SPOTCHECKING, AND HAPHAZARD MONITORING ARE CAUTIONED AGAINST. IDEAL LAB GROUP SIZE SHOULD BE BETWEEN SIX AND 10 STUDENTS, TO ENABLE THE TEACHER TO KNOW DURING THE SESSION HOW HIS STUDENTS ARE PROGRESSING. THE IDEAL CONSOLE FOR EFFECTIVE AND PLANNED MONITORING SHOULD INCLUDE THREE PILOT LIGHTS AND A COUNTER FOR EACH BOOTH, AND PILOTS SHOULD CORRESPOND WITH "RECORD,""PLAY," AND "REWIND" POSITIONS. A COUNTING DEVICE WOULD SHOW WHAT POINT THE STUDENT HAD REACHED IN HIS WORK, THUS PROVIDING VISUAL AS WELL AS AUDIAL MONITORING. FINALLY, STUDENT AND TEACHER SHOULD BE IN VISUAL CONTACT IN THE LABORATORY. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "AUDIO-VISUAL LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 3, NUMBER 3, SPRING 1966, PAGES 137-141. (AF)
