Knop, Constance K.
This supplement contains an additional audiotape lesson aimed mainly at teachers of English as a second language (ESL) working with Indochinese refugee children. The goal of free conversation and communication in the classroom is explicated under the following headings: (1) making drills more meaningful and communicative, (2) using large-group activities, (3) planning small-group work, (4) employing affective learning activities, (5) planning activities outside the classroom, and (6) suggested discussion questions. A detailed outline of instructional techniques presented on four tapes and a description of information presented on transparencies used in the tapes are included. The volume concludes with a selected bibliography of texts and materials for teaching ESL and a definition of terms and concepts used in this program. (JB)
