Johnston, Robert S., Ed.; Craig, Ruth Parle, Ed.
This publication contains a selection of exemplary teaching techniques for instructors of adults in English as a Second Language (ESL). Its scope covers the spectrum of ESL instruction and is designed to assist teachers ranging from the inexperienced to the experienced, without prior inservice orientation. The book contains 202 techniques collected from ESL practitioners, representing 12 states (primarily California), as well as Mexico and Japan. The techniques are organized in 11 subject areas: English structure, pronunciation, conversation, reading, writing, vocabulary, coping/survival competencies, map use and directions, social behavior and customs, games, and classroom organization. Each technique contains the following elements: topic, basic skills code, name and location of the contributor, level of applicability, purpose, materials required, approximate time required, and description of the procedure. The work is indexed by subject; by basic skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing; and by level of applicability. (KC)
