Developing Language Curricula: Programed Exercises for Teachers. Michigan Oral Language Series.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.; American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, New York, NY.
This manual is designed to introduce teachers to basic principles of language analysis which can be immediately applied to classrooms populated by non-English speaking or language handicapped children. Programed exercises covering major units of study are included with follow-up discussion on: (1) nature of language; (2) attitudes toward language; (3) contrast in vowel sounds; (4) consonant sounds; (5) suprasegmentals; stress, pitch, and pause; and (6) the ordered forms of words. The exercises involve the teacher in a detailed analysis of language interference problems which can be anticipated when Spanish background youngsters try to learn English. The manual is intended for use in workshops or by individuals. (RL)
