English as a Second Language: Guide for Teachers.
This teaching guide is based on Paulo Freire's "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" and is intended for use with Haitian migrant workers. The first chapter enunciates the general principles of foreign language teaching; chapters 2-5 illustrate actual use of the principles of control, sequence, reinforcement, and total physical response. Chapters 6 and 7 give numerous examples of substitutions and transformations, relating techniques to specific competencies. Chapter 8 offers suggestions for teaching basic reading, writing, and mathematics to learners who are illiterate or semiliterate in their first language. Chapters 9 and 10 deal with designing a unit and working out lesson plans using basic competency unit cards, as well as suggestions for their use in the classroom. Chapter 11 presents an effective pretest/posttest. Chapter 12 discusses the importance of respect for the learners and for their situation, which here is one of fatigue and poor living conditions in addition to being unable to understand English. The concluding chapters present a number of games using the actual situation and needs of the learners. The appendix contains forms workers may have to complete, a list of competencies, and sample units at Level I for aural/oral skills. (AMH)
