On Target : Teaching in the Target Language. Pathfinder 5. A CILT Series for Language Teachers by Susan Halliwell( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The guide is designed to illustrate how it is realistic and possible to teach in a target foreign language, propose effective instructional strategies and techniques, and offer suggestions for inservice teacher workshops on the approach. It is proposed that language students need to experience the target language as a real means of communication, have a chance to develop their own built-in learning system, and bridge the gap between controlled, secure classroom practice and the unpredictability of real language encounters. The guide begins with a discussion of teacher concerns about teaching in the target language, sources of meaning other than verbal in communication, classroom techniques for providing messages without use of language, and providing messages using limited language. The second section offers specific strategies for implementation in the classroom, including simple instructions and other expressions, techniques for encouraging student participation and satisfaction, and areas in which teachers can cooperate. Specific activities are provided and illustrated. The final section gives ideas for departmental inservice workshops on teaching in the target language, including activities, and recommendations for troubleshooting in classroom communication. (MSE)
Grammar Matters. Pathfinder 17. a Cilt Series for Language Teachers by Susan Halliwell( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Issues in the teaching of grammar in a second language are explored, and classroom presentation methods are discussed. The first chapter introduces four views of grammar and its use: as description; terminology; rules; and pattern. Each is illustrated with examples from instructional materials in several languages. In the second chapter, the direct and indirect approaches to teaching grammar are distinguished, and three approaches used in practice are described and illustrated: (1) grammar presented and practiced implicitly; (2) explicit grammar practiced as pattern; and (3) explicit grammar formally discussed. The third chapter addresses the teacher's choice of approach, noting that the choice will rest primarily on the language elements concerned and the learners' needs. The fourth chapter outlines some points on which the teacher may want to reflect in selecting the appropriate technique for teaching grammar. Contains a six-item list for further reading. (Mse)
Yes--but Will They Behave? Managing the Interactive Classroom. Pathfinder 4 by Susan Halliwell( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This guide is designed to assist British language teachers in organizing language lessons to offer opportunities for real communication and lively interaction while maintaining a reasonable working atmosphere for both pupils and teachers. The guide suggests ways to avoid creating unnecessary problems, respond constructively to classroom problems that do arise, and reduce the need for overtly imposed control. The first section offers help in anticipating the effect of a given activity, recommending that teachers ask whether: (1) the activity has the result of stirring up or settling the class; and (2) in what ways it involves the learner, mentally and physically. Some insights into the relationship between student involvement and behavior are offered. The second section provides specific techniques for adjusting an activity to provide the same linguistic experience while creating a different mood in the classroom, including changing the behavior of an individual student, increasing actual class occupation, and increasing mental engagement. The third section discusses adjustments in the sequence of activities to: (1) start a lesson in a way that calms students; (2) place lively work between calm phases; and (3) improve management of longer lessons. Some final, general comments on class management are also offered. (Mse)
