Methodology (Chapter A in the Teacher's Manual of the Adult Migrant Education Program, Australia).
Ingram, D. E.
This methodology for teaching English as a second language begins with a discussion of the basis for methodology, which is seen as revolving around the nature of language and the nature of the learner and society. The actual methodological approach is embodied in the following chapters: "Developing an Integrated Programme,""Focus on Use,""Focus on Communication,""Focus on the Learner,""Contextualize the Language,""Provide Wide, Diverse Experience,""Practise 'Mobilizing' the Language,""Individualize Instruction," and "Language Laboratory." A section devoted to course components covers community involvement, syntax, vocabulary, functions, discourse and cohesion, the sound system and paralinguistics, registers, the four macroskills, culture teaching, and attitudinal development.
