Language Teaching Analysis.
Mackey, William F.
This book is addressed to language teachers, teachers in training, school inspectors, local education authorities, and researchers. Its three concerns are the analysis of language, method, and teaching. Under language analysis, attention is directed to language theory, description, differences, and learning. The section on method analysis begins with a discussion of the meaning of method, and considers selection, gradation, presentation, repetition, and the measurement of method. The teaching analysis section discusses suitability of methods, automated language teaching, and measurement of language learning. Three lesson analyses (on language, plan, and techniques) are also included here. Short appendixes describe language drills and games and mechanolinguistic method analysis. An extensive topical bibliography with the most recent works listed first, concludes the book. (AF)
