Kreidler, Carol J., Ed.; Pedtke, Dorothy A., Ed.
The following report summarizes a number of United States activities in or related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. The report, while not exhaustive, attempts to be representative. (Mention has been omitted of projects which dealt only or chiefly with the teaching of standard English to speakers of other dialects.) Sources of information include reports from federal, state, and city government agencies; universities, foundations, and other private organizations; articles and notices in newsletters and professional journals; brochures; and personal contact. Sections cover (1) English language teaching and teacher training in the United States; (2) English language teaching and teacher training overseas; and (3) materials, testing and research. An index of organizations and addresses is appended. This report is usually prepared by the English for Speakers of Other Languages Program of the Center for Applied Linguistics as part of the American presentation at the International Conference on Second Language Problems (which did not meet in 1970). For previous reports, see ED 018 788 and ED 030 115. (AMM)
