A Language Teacher's Guide. Second Edition.
Meras, Edmond A.
Presented in this book for prospective and practicing foreign language teachers is an historical review of language teaching and teaching techniques--some new, some traditional. Presentation and method in relation to scholastic level and pupil interest are discussed, as well as language teaching in the elementary school, the use of audio-visual aids, and curriculum construction. Permanent bases and objectives of foreign language teaching are examined in chapters on dictation, conversation, composition, cultural context, grammar, reading, vocabulary, and pronunciation. Sample tests are included as patterns for constructing examinations. The teacher role in class, in the community, in the school system, and in the foreign language teaching profession are also considered. (CW)
