Language and language learning by Albert H Marckwardt( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of five papers from the Anglo-American Seminar on the Teaching of English deals with language standards, common attitudes toward language, the relationship between linguistics and the teaching of English, and the linguistic component of the preparation of the English teacher. Albert H. Marckwardt surveys the history of language standards, presents the respective views of the English teacher and the linguist on standard English, and attempts to show how each can benefit from understanding the other's viewpoint. David Mackay emphasizes the need for the English teacher to relate standard English to the student's personal dialect, and to guide him in understanding and mastering the most appropriate forms. John M. Sinclair considers what the English teacher needs to know about linguistics and what types of linguistic system would be most valuable to teachers in describing the language. Joshua Fishman points out that because mot Americans have some cultural roots in languages other than English, their sensitiveness to these languages should be taken into account by the teacher of English. The last paper, the final report of the joint working party and study group, presents seven main issues that must be dealt with in any discussion of teacher education and language learning. (LH)
Growth through English; a report based on the Dartmouth Seminar, 1966 by John Dixon( Book )

11 editions published between 1966 and 1972 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At dartmouth college, in the summer of 1966, over 50 educators from the united states, england, and canada participated in the first anglo-american seminar on the teaching of english. This report, written for the english teaching profession, is not a survey or summary of the conference, but rather is an elaboration of the consensus of the seminar. Hopefully, it will be a starting point for the development of new and more effective english programs based on the concepts that english, as a subject, is learning to order experience through language, and that language is learned through the experience of using it. A detailed analysis of how this concept shapes classroom activities which lead students to understand and articulate new roles, situations, and levels of human experience is followed by a discussion of how students can be directed to use a body of knowledge as their guide to action or point of reference. Succeeding chapters deal with the problems of continuity and examinations in such an english program and with the wider implications of such a program as it affects teacher education and the school's relationship to its community. Finally, a summary chapter assesses the place of this conference in the continuing effort toward devising more realistic, meaningful, and effective english programs.

Assessing children's language : guidelines for teachers by Andrew Stibbs( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for classroom teachers, this book suggests some approaches to assessing children's language, describes some practices, and advises teachers of some of the problems in child language assessment. Chapter one provides illustrations of assessing child language usage, including looking at a piece of writing, administering a reading test, listening to a pupil read aloud, and responding to examination answers. Chapter two discusses the structures of assessment (the surface features of language use, the process of language, and the "basics" of language), their implications for teaching, and their implications for assessing. Chapter three focuses on tests, examinations, and their alternatives. The final chapter restates the guidelines for assessing children's language and considers how these guidelines might assist in the assessment problems used as examples. A glossary and bibliography are included. (RL)
