An Integrated Activity Course for Juniors. The Bell Educational Trust Academic Reports.
Swaffield, Sue; And Others
Four reports describing aspects of a summer English course, designed for foreign students from a variety of backgrounds, focus on learning English through classroom lessons and extra-curricular activities. Sue Swaffield, the course director, outlines the background, organization, and staffing of the course, looking at its broad aims and role in the overall Bell program. The curriculum director, John Clark, addresses the design and development of the course, emphasizing the roles of staff and students in the evolution of instructional activities. A teacher, Joss Pinches, describes the production of a course newspaper with a group of students and shows how this activity can promote a wide range of language-learning experiences and opportunities for personal involvement. Finally, two other teachers, Gillian Richards and Matthew White, report on their groups' 4-week investigation of the media and the range of experiences and activities it offered. (MSE)
