On TESOL 74.
Crymes, Ruth, Ed.; Norris, William, Ed.
The 23 papers in this volume are classified into the following seven areas: (1) the profession, (2) the teacher, (3) the learner, (4) programs, (5) the organization of materials, (6) testing, and (7) the classroom. The papers appear here just as they were prepared for presentation at the 1974 TESOL Convention. The three papers in part 1 look at changes in English language teaching practices, the differences between British and American approaches to teaching English, and the social, cultural, and political dimensions of English language instruction. In part 2 emphasis is placed on training programs for ESL teachers. The four papers in the "focus on the learner" section stress the need for a deeper understanding of the cultural and social, as well as linguistic, background of the language learner. In "focus on programs," two papers deal with bilingual education in the U.S. and one with a short-term program for Japanese teachers visiting the U.S. The papers in part 5 deal with selecting and sequencing materials for instruction. Part 6 provides information for the test writer, the teacher, and the test-writing teacher. The final section presents three papers detailing specific classroom activities and teaching techniques. The papers by M. Finocchiaro and B. K. Taska have already been entered into the ERIC system as ED 091 948 and ED 096 812, respectively. (PMP)
