Fluency First: Preparation for Reading and Writing. An Oral English Course. Instructor's Manual.
This instructor's manual is part of Fluency First, a complete oral instruction program in English as a second language designed primarily for non-English-speaking adult Canadians who are illiterate in their own language. The manual is intended to serve as a bridge between oral instruction and a literacy course, permitting the student to make the first steps towards the acquisition of reading and writing skills while he is still in the process of learning the language itself. Part 1 deals with general introductory information, including phonemic notation, course methodology and content, student placement, and course objectives. Part 2 discusses instructional procedures, class organization and activities, and materials. Thirty-four lesson plans are provided in part 3. An outline of material for additional lessons, and a list of words which have been learned and are therefore suitable for reading and writing lessons, are appended. (AM)
