Research within Reach II: Research-Guided Responses to the Concerns of Foreign Language Teachers.
Galloway, Vicki, Ed.; Herron, Carol, Ed.
Based on the questions of second language teachers concerning classroom practice, generated by survey, research on aspects of second language teaching and learning was reviewed and is summarized here. In each case, a question or questions are posed and a brief discussion follows, in layman's language and based on relevant research, with a brief bibliography. Questions address these issues: how to use research better (Donna M. Johnson); language learning processes and strategies (Joan Rubin); advances in the uses of instructional technology (James P. Pusack, Sue K. Otto); teaching for cultural diversity (Genelle Morain); listening instruction (Eileen W. Glisan); reading instruction (Marva A. Barnett); teaching speech skills (Myriam Met); writing instruction (Virginia Scott); grammar instruction (L. Kathy Heilenman); vocabulary development (Thomas C. Cooper); and testing (June K. Phillips). Each article contains references. (MSE)
