Listening and Speaking in the English Classroom: A Collection of Readings.
Cayer, Roger L.; And Others
The essay in this text cover major areas of interest, development, and scholarship in the teaching of oral language. Selection was made on the basis of what would best illustrate the principle of integration among the language arts and provide the most instructive classroom application of that principle. The essays are presented in seven sections. The first of the seven categories, "The Comprehensive English Program," defines and explains the guiding principle of the text--that to be taught effectively, English must be conceived of as a cohesive complex of interdependent components. "The Teaching of Listening" and "The Teaching of Speaking" comprise essays on methods and techniques calculated to assist the teacher in teaching listening and speaking, respectively. Essays in the fourth section, "Listening and the Development of Other Language Skills," and in the fifth, "Speaking and the Development of Other Language Skills," present specific applications of listening and speaking in teaching language and literature. "Audiovisual Technology and the Development of Language Skills" contains essays that explore the mustisensory approach to teaching the language arts through varied application of audiovisual technology. A final category, "Oral Language and Teaching the Disadvantaged," focuses on the primacy of oral communication in affecting the general language development and improvement of the disadvantaged.
