Haskell, John F., Ed.
Three volumes of the "TESOL Newsletter" from 1976 and November 1975 present articles on different aspects of teaching English as a second language. Many of the articles discuss teaching techniques, including: (1) a discussion of teaching written English through sector analysis, (2) a description of a counseling-learning model for second language learning, (3) a reference list for teaching grammatical structures in situational contexts, (4) ideas for increasing communicative competence of ESL students, (5) a discussion of improving teacher-made language tapes, (6) a discussion of public speaking in the ESL classroom, and (7) a consideration of the "Silent Way" approach to language teaching. Other articles discuss student needs, and the results of a survey that clarifies characteristics of ESL students are presented. Testing is discussed in articles on: (1) the use of the Cloze test to select reading material, and (2) testing adult immigrants in open enrollment programs. Other articles include a description of the Family Language Problem of John Jay High School in Park Slope and reflections in applied linguistics. (NCR)
