English-language policy survey of Jordan : a case study in language planning by William Harrison( Book )

12 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1972, the Ford Foundation began a survey of English-language instruction in Jordan, including the English program at the University of Jordan. The survey attempted a critical assessment of various aspects of the English program. Part one of this report on the survey describes the aims and dimension of English instruction in Jordan, curricula and instructional materials, and teacher-training activities. Part two deals with a study of the relationships among such factors as age, educational level, sex, and the use of English. The final two chapters present a critical analysis of the program and a summary of recommendations. It is believed that both the data and the methodology of the survey will be of interest to researchers and educational planners not only in Jordan but in other countries as well. Questionnaires and other materials related to the survey are appended. (Author/AM)

A study of the "new primary approach" in the schools of Kenya by Marnixius Hutasoit( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-part study is an outgrowth of the explosive expansion in English-medium instruction which has taken place in the primary schools of Kenya since 1957. "Part I: The Prator Statement," which concentrates on the linguistic, methodological, and teacher-training aspects of the overall problem, presents first a description of the linguistic background of Kenya, the rationale underlying the use of English as a medium of instruction, and the role of Swahili and the vernaculars. Also described are the present language policy, its implementation and future, and the development of the NPA ("New Primary Approach"--Referred to formerly as the "English-Medium Scheme"). The author evaluates the "New Peak Course" and the teacher training colleges. "Part II: The Hutasoit Statement" focuses attention on the administrative and financial aspects of education in Kenya and implementation of the NPA. A few of the joint recommendations appended to the report suggest that (1) English should become the universal medium of instruction in Kenya schools, (2) Swahili should be introduced in Standard (Grade) IV and be continued as a compulsory subject, (3) primary school pupils should become literate in their vernacular, and (4) for adequate instruction in Swahili, it is necessary to prepare teaching materials and to develop teacher training facilities.

Development of a manipulation-communication scale by Clifford H Prator( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers have been increasingly worried for more than a decade about the effectiveness of English as a second language instruction in the United States at the intermediate and advanced levels. This article investigates briefly the causes of this situation and suggests a theoretical guideline--a scale of manipulation and communication teaching techniques which would allow for a gradual and orderly transition from activities that emphasize the development of basic linguistic skills to activities designed to encourage the free communication of thought. Communicative classroom activities are defined as those that allow the student to find the words and structures he uses. Manipulative activities are those in which the student receives the words and structures from teacher, tape, or book. The movement from manipulation to communication does not have to be abrupt, and probably the shift should never be total, even in the most advanced classes. One result of the application of the scale, which would make use of Gurrey's classification of questions, might be a blurring of the sharp line separating language courses from literature courses.
