Teaching English As a Second Language, Grades 7 through 12.
Kleitsch, Russell V.
Teaching English as a second language in the secondary schools is emphasized as a means of eliminating the language barrier of non-English-speaking students. The purpose of the publication is to provide guidelines for schools in fulfilling their responsibility of meeting the particular needs of individual Spanish-speaking students. Methods are suggested for classifying students into different levels according to their English proficiency. The English as a Second Language program is characterized in terms of sequence (continuity in instruction) and saturation (total amount of time spent daily in studying), which allow for individual differences of students. Special problems treated are teaching pronunciation and sentence structure, with a supplementary section devoted to oral and reading and writing activities. Sample lesson plans are included to cover various stages of a year's instruction. (CM)
