Haitian Creole via Total Physical Response; An Introduction.
Lafayette, Robert C.; Zephir, Flore
The instructional materials for introductory instruction in Haitian Creole are designed for use with the Total Physical Response method of second language teaching, with priority placed on listening comprehension before production and on internalization of physical activities during use of the language. The text consists of 24 chapters targeting basic oral command of the language and some reading experience. Each chapter consists of five sections: reentry material, two sets of new material, and a section providing novel activities and language uses following each set of new material. An introductory section describes the method and materials and suggests specific classroom techniques and procedures, related to the materials, for teachers. A thematically grouped vocabulary list is provided after each group of five chapters, and brief, basic grammar notes intended for reference use if desired are appended. (MSE)
