Methods and Techniques for Communicative Competence in Bilingual Education, Packet II. Language Proficiency Acquisition, Assessment, and Communicative Behavior, Series B. Student Edition. Bilingual Education Teacher Training Packets.
Calderon, Margarita; And Others
A teacher training packet (student's edition) on methods and techniques for communicative competence in bilingual education is presented. In addition to state-of-the-art reviews, the packet contains: a course syllabus, a pretest, a glossary, learning objectives, learning activities, a notional-functional taxonomy; diagrams of the notional-functional model and the strategic interaction (S-I) model, scenarios for conversational practice, a guide to discussion on scenario development, a dialogue in Spanish of students working on a math lesson, and a posttest. Narrative sections are presented on the following topics: (1) past and present trends toward communicative competence, (2) a framework for communicative competence, (3) the functional approach to communicative competence, (4) basic components of the S-I method, (5) applications of the S-I method, and (6) scenario development. A chapter by Mary Ann Larsen-Pusey entitled, "Communicative Competence: Application through a Functional Approach," describes a teaching model that progresses from oral dialogue to written discourse. Another chapter, by Robert J. DiPiertro, entitled, "The Strategic-Interaction Method: Learning through Language Use in the Classroom," describes a second model that gives equal significance to both form and function. Finally, a chapter by Olga Rubio entitled, "The Strategic-Interaction Method in the Classroom," considers open-ended scenario development. (SW)
