FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE--SOME CRITICAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE ORGANIZATION AND ASSESSMENT OF TEACHING PRACTICE FOR PROSPECTIVE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHERS.
REES, ALUN L.W.
THE AUTHOR DISCUSSES THE "PRACTICE CLASS" AS IT IS IMPLEMENTED IN THE FINAL YEAR OF THE FIVE-YEAR COURSE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF ENGLISH AT THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF TRUJILLO. THE PERUVIAN STUDENT-TEACHER (WITH 56 HOURS OF THEORETICAL INSTRUCTION, IN ADDITION TO A BACKGROUND IN LINGUISTICS), CONDUCTS A MINIMUM OF 15 ONE-HOUR PRACTICE CLASSES APPROVED AND SUPERVISED BY APPOINTED MEMBERS OF THE STAFF. THE PRACTICE CLASSES ARE CARRIED OUT IN LOCAL SECONDARY SCHOOLS WITH GROUPS OF 25 TO 40 BOYS OR GIRLS WHOSE AGES RANGE FROM 11 TO 19. A SUPERVISOR ("TUTOR") OBSERVES AND LATER DISCUSSES HIS OBSERVATIONS WITH THE TRAINEE AND OTHER TRAINEES WHO MAY BE OBSERVING. A CULMINATING CLASS SESSION IS CONDUCTED BEFORE A JURY OF THREE--TWO TUTORS AND THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT. A SECRET BALLOT DETERMINES PASSING OR FAILING. THE OTHER PROCEEDINGS (CARRIED OUT IN ENGLISH) ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ACCORDING TO A UNIVERSITY REGULATION. THE AUTHOR ALSO DISCUSSES RECENT IMPROVEMENTS IN THE LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT WHICH HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICABILITY.
