Reeback, Robert T.
This document is the teachers' manual for use with the Oral Language Program, a 1-year set ot daily lessons of roughly 25 minutes each designed to help five- to seven-year-old children who do not speak English, or who speak dialects of English that offer significant structural competition with the standard dialects, to become proficient speakers and understanders of standard American English. (See SP 004 400 for description of the program and SP 004 396 for the program's pre-lessons.) The teachers' manual has four main sections: 1) "The History and Scope of the OLP" which includes description of the content of the lessons and some comments on "Structure"; 2) "A Guide to the Lessons" with subsections on format, preparation, materials, "native tradition" lessons, chekclists, and content tests; 3) "The Teaching Situation" including group size and composition, pacing, furniture and arrangement, teacher aides, and use of native language dialect; 4) "Important Teaching Techniques": shaping and maintaining correct responses, conventions, modeling, correcting errors, and attention. Appended are a suggested reading list (16 books and articles and seven journals), a lexicon of words which appear in the program, and materials list with index. (JS)
