Workpapers in English as a Second Language, [Volume III].
Bracy, Maryruth, Ed.
This volume contains the 1969 working papers on subjects related to teaching English as a second language (TESL) and abstracts of Masters Theses completed by students studying TESL. Several articles discuss teaching and learning a second language and practical considerations in second language learning such as reading and writing skills, the use of poetry, the concept of style among elementary school children, and procedures and objectives for analyzing classes. One article concerns attitudes toward the teaching of a particular pronunciation of English, and another discusses the role of the Prague School in the development of foreign language teaching. One study provides a comparison of the relative control of English and Amharic by eleventh-grade Ethiopian students. (VM)
