Several articles of interest to teachers of English as a second language (ESL) are included. "The Three-Tier Approach to Reading in the Subject Area" described by Trevor McQuinn consists of a procedure for developing lessons based on the need to teach vocabulary, comprehension, and literacy. "Teaching Beginning Reading: An Interview with Virginia French Allen, Part 1" presents Allen's ideas on teaching beginning spelling. In "From Language to Learning," Graham Patterson lists gambits to serve as stimuli to communication in the ESL classroom. "The Value of Linguistics in Second Language Teaching" to Jim Hutchison is the impetus it provides to examine critically the structure and nature of the language. Finally, Diane Harwood briefly discusses "Preparation of Multi-Purpose Materials." (JB)
