Gorman, T. P., Ed.
This is the eighth volume in a continuing series of papers on the teaching of English as a second language. The 14 papers included here represent work in progress and cover a wide range of topics. In the first paper, E. Hatch summarizes recent studies in language switching and mixing. Specific ESL teaching techniques are suggested in articles by M. Celce-Murcia, J. Povey, L. McIntosh, and J. Heaton. J. D. Bowen discusses ways of measuring language dominance in bilinguals. The first three years of the Culver City, California, Spanish Immersion Program are described by A. D. Cohen and S. M. Lebach, and R. D. Wilson writes about teacher attitudes toward minority students. Some evidence for the predictive validity of the UCLA English as a Second Language Placement Examination is provided by E. Rand. Training programs for ESL teachers are described in papers by R. N. Campbell and Y. A. El-Ezabi. T. P. Gorman uses the UCLA English Language Policy Survey of Jordan as a basis for discussing a variety of approaches to the study of educational language policy in developing nations. The achievements and long-term goals of the English Language Institute of the American University in Cairo are discussed by C. H. Prator. The final paper, by Y. Akai, deals with problems in college-level English instruction in Japan. (PMP)
