Workpapers in English as a Second Language, [Volume II].
Rand, Earl, Ed.
This volume presents the 1968 collection of working papers in the field of teaching English as a second language (TESL). It includes discussions of several practicalities in the field of English language teaching such as choosing literature and short stories for non-native speakers, criteria for selecting textbooks, educational problems involved in TESL, language learning among the Navaho, English language teaching at home and abroad, TESL in a planned multilingual situation, and free recall of orally presented sentences as a test of English competence. Several articles discuss applied linguistic theory on such diverse topics as the role of rules in second language learning, teaching pronunciation, and a rationale for teaching a second language.
