Developing a Course in the Teaching of English as a Second Language.
Frith, Mae B.
This paper describes a course in the teaching of English as a second language (TESL) at McGill University to give graduating students insights into the problems classroom teachers encounter when working with children from multi-lingual backgrounds and to orient them to some of the techniques and procedures of teaching English as a second language. The first month of the course, with meetings three hours per week, was used to gain some basic understandings of linguistics and its contribution to TESL. After the first month, one hour of the course was spent in tutoring and the other two hours in dealing with problems arising from the tutoring situation and building on and extending basic understandings of principles and techniques gained earlier. Each student was asked to design a final project, guided by his tutoring experience as well as his reading and other experiences offered by the course. (HOD)
