Rammuny, Raji M.
This handbook is primarily designed for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs), Instructional Assistants (IAs) and Teacher Trainees (TTs) in the Department of Near Eastern Studies (NES), Formerly Department of Near Eastern Languages and Literatures, at the University of Michigan. The contents of the Handbook, however, can be of service to all teacher training programs in the United States and abroad. The Handbook consists of two parts. Part I contains policies and regulations relating to the appointments and responsibilities of GTAs and IAs and the relationships between them and supervising course instructors. Part II provides useful information needed for basic orientation and training of prospective language teachers, regardless of their language specialization. Of special interest are: outlines of NES Methods Course; sample lesson plans, based on actual classroom teaching, demonstrating various teaching techniques; sample tests; samples of GTA evaluation report and NES course evaluation; some observations derived from NES Teacher Training Seminars and video-tape demonstrations for prospective language teachers. At the end of Part II, a reading list, arranged alphabetically by author and subject matter and relating to language learning and teaching, is provided. (Author)
