On Tesol '76.
Fanselow, John F., Ed.; Crymes, Ruth H., Ed.
This document represents a sampling of the teaching done at the 1976 TESOL convention in New York City in workshops, demonstration lessons, presentations and plenary sessions. These twenty-six selections by 42 teachers reflect the present state of the art in TESOL. It covers a wide variety of topics of interest to the ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher; innovative teaching methods such as the Silent Way, Suggestopedia, and the "Fantasy Journey"; teaching listening comprehension; teacher training; research in interlanguage; approaches to teaching pronunciation and spelling; correction of classroom conversation errors; films and sociolingusitic awareness; reading; composition; the role of memory in language learning; manipulation of sentence structure with Cuisenaire rods; the development of WH-questions; oral drills of English structures; and the typewriter as an educational tool.
