GUIDES FOR TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS.
WILSON, ROBERT; AND OTHERS
THIS DOCUMENT IS A FINAL REPORT AND SUMMARY OF A PROJECT DESIGNED TO DEVELOP GUIDES FOR TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS. THE GUIDES ARE NOW TITLED "TEACHING ENGLISH EARLY," AND COVER THE FIRST TWO LEVELS OF INSTRUCTION. (SEE RELATED DOCUMENTS AL 001 238 AND AL 001 239.) THE MATERIALS PREPARED BY THIS PROJECT ARE ORGANIZED IN A SERIES OF CAREFULLY SEQUENCED DAILY LESSONS BASED ON AUDIO-LINGUAL PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING AND ARE WRITTEN FOR A SITUATION IN WHICH EIGHT OR TEN CHILDREN ARE TAKEN FROM THEIR REGULAR CLASSROOM EACH DAY FOR APPROXIMATELY A HALF-HOUR OF SPECIAL INSTRUCTION. EACH LESSON INCLUDES REVIEW AND EVALUATION ACTIVITIES AS WELL AS SPECIAL DIRECTIONS TO THE TEACHER PLANNED TO GUIDE EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION OF THE MATERIAL. THIS REPORT INCLUDES A DESCRIPTION OF TWO STUDIES COMPARING THE GROWTH IN LANGUAGE EFFICIENCY OF CHILDREN RECEIVING SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOR A HALF-HOUR DAILY USING THE PROJECT MATERIALS WITH MATCHED GROUPS RECEIVING NO SPECIAL INSTRUCTION. THESE STUDIES GIVE STRONG EVIDENCE THAT THE CHILDREN RECEIVING INSTRUCTION THROUGH THE USE OF THE PROJECT MATERIALS COMPARE FAVORABLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO USE ENGLISH WITH CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN AGE GROUP WHO SPEAK ENGLISH AS THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE. ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT IS A DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITIES AND RATIONALE, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS, AS WELL AS APPENDED OUTLINES OF THE SEQUENCE OF SYNTACTIC STRUCTURES AND THE PHONOLOGY FOR LEVELS I AND II.
