Practice-Centered Teacher Training: Standard English for Speakers of Nonstandard Dialects. Language and the Teacher: A Series in Applied Linguistics, Volume 27.
Bartley, Diana E.; Politzer, Robert L.
This text is a syllabus for the training of teachers of standard English to speakers of nonstandard dialects. The assumptions underlying this publication are that important elements of foreign-language teaching methodology are applicable to teaching standard English as a second dialect and that this methodology can be taught effectively if applied linguistics and methodology are closely integrated and lead to immediate practical application. The syllabus consists of three parts: (1) applied linguistics, including sections on phonology, morphology, and elements of syntax; (2) teaching procedures; and (3) microlessons. The section on syntax examines: (1) management of audiolingual activities, (2) presentation of basic materials, (3) teaching of structure orally, (4) teaching of structure through reading, (5) teaching of pronunciation, (6) teaching of sound/letter correspondence (spelling), (7) teaching of reading, (8) using visual aids, and (9) use of electronic equipment (language laboratory). A bibliography is included. (RL)
