Classroom techniques : foreign languages and English as a second language by Edward David Allen( Book )

25 editions published between 1972 and 1994 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of a second-language course depends not only on the quality of the basic program but also on the flexibility with which the teacher uses that program. The aim of this handbook is to show teachers ways of implementing and supplementing existing materials. The suggested teaching procedures may be used with large classes, small groups, and individual students. They may also be used with any method, inasmuch as a special effort has been made to include a variety of teaching approaches
Modern language performance objectives and individualization; a handbook by Rebecca M Valette( Book )

17 editions published between 1972 and 1976 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern language classroom techniques; a handbook by Edward David Allen( Book )

11 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this handbook is to show the teacher ways of implementing and supplementing existing materials. The suggested teaching procedures may be used in classes of varying sizes and levels, and with any method. Although the emphasis is on teacher-made materials, many of the techniques suggested may be implemented with commercial programs, films, slides and transparencies. The handbook contains four parts: (1) The Language Class, an overview; (2) Presenting the Language; (3) Developing the Skills; and (4) Beyond Language. The following topics are discussed: an overview of the course; preparation of supplementary materials; classroom management procedures; specific techniques for teaching the language itself -- its sound system, grammar and vocabulary; ways of developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills; the teaching of culture, both daily life patterns and general civilization. The appendix contains sample lesson plans that show how several procedures and techniques may be woven into a single class period. The text is based on the belief that the success of a foreign language course depends not only on the quality of the basic program but also on the flexibility with which the teacher uses that program.

Directions in foreign language testing by Rebecca M Valette( Book )

This handbook, which focuses on foreign language teaching in the classroom, aims to describe the "state of the art" in testing. The first section considers the area of aptitude testing, particularly the diagnostic function of aptitude tests. A taxonomy of foreign language teaching objectives points out the need to classify the aims of foreign language instruction. Another section on measuring achievement explores techniques and recent research, strongly urging the use of criterion-reference tests. The use of tests in the classroom and methods of evaluating teacher competence are discussed. Research needs are spelled out and a bibliography offered. Several tables graphically illustrate key concepts in this paper. (Rl)
