Teacher's Manual for Speakeasy, Hearsay, Reading Right. English for Special Purposes Series: Autobody Repair.
Peet, William, Jr.; And Others
A tripartite program of instruction in English as a second language for adults is described. Program materials discussed consist of a set of low vocabulary readers with exercises ("Reading Right"), a videotaped lecture accompanied by two workbooks with sets of exercises to develop listening comprehension ("Hearsay"), and two volumes of classroom dialogs ("Speakeasy"). The reading and speaking portions of the program emphasize survival skills, while the lecture is designed to impart knowledge of auto mechanics. Teaching notes for "Speakeasy" outline the grammatical features emphasized in each unit and list suggested props and teacher prompts. In addition to the teacher leads necessary to implement the various exercises in the program, the guide provided suggestions for additional class activities. (JB)
