Designed for faculty who are new to the Ohio Program of Intensive English (OPIE), this handbook is intended as an orientation and basic reference guide. The OPIE is described as a program established at Ohio University in 1967 to offer intensive or semi-intensive English language training for non-native speakers who need English for academic study at an American college or university and/or who will use English in their employment. Details of the OPIE's mission, organization, staff, students, and curriculum are followed by descriptions of classes and textbooks, the language laboratory, faculty responsibilities, teaching associate (TA) training and responsibilities, student testing and placement, and English tests used in the program. Instructions for proctoring the Michigan Test Battery, guidelines for scoring written compositions by skill level, and details of team teaching in the OPIE are described. Further information covers orientation of students to American culture and to life at an American university, extracurricular opportunities, professional teacher organizations, faculty/administrative contract benefit information, program policies and procedures, student attendance and performance policy, and merit evaluation and reappointment procedures for TA's. Forms are included for teacher evaluation of students, TA's, and textbooks and for student evaluation of classes, teachers, and textbooks. (JW)
