Steiner, Judy, Ed.
English Teachers' Journal (Israel), n50-51 1997
English Teachers' Journal is an official publication of the Israeli Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. Each issue contains a series of articles on a single theme, a theme that changes with every issue. Regular features include "Spotlight on Schools"; "Of General Interest"; "From the Field"; "Book Reviews"; "Bulletin Board"; "Round Table Discussion"; "Letters to the Editor"; and "Bagrut Answer Keys." Number 50 focuses on computer assisted language learning (CALL). The articles in this edition represent a wide spectrum of thought on the implementation of CALL in the English classroom. The English Inspectorate not only encourages teachers to become computer literate but also wants to provide maximal opportunities for integrating computers into the classroom. Number 51 focuses on whole language and how it has been adapted to the teaching of English as a foreign language in Israel. It is important to note that the Israeli Ministry of Education has not adopted whole language as it is widely known in the United States and elsewhere, but has orchestrated a combination of communicative methodology and whole language principles suitable to the needs of Israeli pupils. The emphasis is on providing a print-rich environment with abundant opportunities for reading and writing. This edition also includes background information on the Israeli "National Standards for Learners of English: A Curriculum for Israeli Schools." (Most articles contain references.) (KFT)
