ROAMing in the English Classroom. Teacher Edition.
Liebendorfer, R. E.
For use mainly in the English classroom, the 21 lesson plans in this book emphasize the ROAM method, which integrates Repeating, Observing, Associating, and Memorizing as a means to appreciate the communicative arts. The book explains and shows how students can improve and then master communication skills using a four-step process: (1) COLLECT, encouraging a student to create interest in a broad topic or narrow subject; (2) SELECT the best way to organize the parts of a writing assignment or speech; (3) CORRECTly join and rank ideas by moving conjunctions and punctuation; and (4) PERFECT, helping students to maximize their communication potential. The lesson plans in the book discuss: outlining, applying the ROAM method, helpful analyses, how to use examples, varying ideas, verbal parallelisms, visual parallelisms, and public speaking. The book also includes review exercises and tests. Answers to selected exercises and tests are attached. (RS)
