Conventions in the Mechanics of Writing: A Language Laboratory Manual for Foreign Students.
Jaramillo, Barbara L.
This manual is designed for the use of ESL students in the language laboratory. The manual consists of 30 lessons, each between 5 and 10 minutes in length. Every fifth lesson, beginning with lesson 10, is a review lesson. The emphasis is on punctuation. For a 15-week course, the materials are designed to be used twice a week during the regular language laboratory session. The instructor should be prepared to devote 10 to 15 minutes to each lesson, including correction time. The students should be able to correct their own errors and chart their own progress, and therefore minimal teacher supervision is required. (Author/AM)
