A Manual for Teachers of Indochinese Students.
Phap, Dam Trung
This is a manual for teachers of Indochinese students. The manual begins with brief cultural, linguistic, and historical descriptions of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodian people. The tenets of animism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Christianity, as practiced in Indochina are reviewed. Also discussed are Indochinese attitudes toward learning and formal education. Various classroom considerations are then outlined which emphasize the need to help the Indochinese student adjust to both a new way of life and a new learning environment and communication techniques to be used when counseling Indochinese students are also suggested. Finally, a series of activities for teaching English, which focus on phonology, morphology and syntax, are provided. (APM)
