Workpapers in English as a Second Language: Matter, Methods, Materials, Vol. 1.
Rand, E., Ed.
This is the first volume in a continuing series of working papers on English as a second language. The selections in this volume are divided into two groups. The first is a series of three papers given at the annual meeting of the National Association of Foreign Student Affairs held in Chicago in April 1966. These papers, by P. Schnachter, R. Wilson, and L. McIntosh illustrate how to move from the theories of transformational grammar and contrastive analysis to practical application when teaching English to Tagalog speakers. The first paper in part 2 is by C. H. Prator and develops guidelines for planning lessons so that students progress steadily toward more natural uses of language. In the second paper, J. Donald Bowen makes observations about the National Defense Education Act summer TESL institutes and suggestions for their improvement. In his paper, R. N. Campbell favors the inclusion of a "taped achievement test" as the culminating activity in a language laboratory pronunciation exercise. E. Rand describes a sequence of exercises to increase writing fluency in the final paper. For the remaining three papers in the volume, by McIntosh, Povey and Briere et al., see ED 012 438, ED 012 439, and ED 091 776, respectively. (PMP)
