Conversational English for the Non-English-Speaking Child.
Phillips, Nina
This book was originally developed as a practical manual for use in training volunteers in the New York City School Volunteer Program. In its present form, it is both a manual and a reference book. The book begins with a discussion of the disadvantaged child and the frame of reference in which English is to be taught. Methods and materials are then covered, including audio-visual-lingual theory, object boxes, picture games, action routines, instructional pictures, picture files, basic teaching materials, category word lists, and teaching materials related by subject. The author also considers approach to the child, language rating scales, pupil information forms, evaluation of pupil progress, the use of journals as records of pupil progress, training programs for volunteers, and guidelines for chairmen.
