Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, 1964 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 212 pages
Since its original publication in 1968, Rivers's comprehensive and practical text has become a standard reference for both student teachers and veteran instructors. All who wish to draw from the most recent thinking in the field will welcome this new edition. Methodology is appraised, followed up by discussions on such matters as keeping students of differing abilities active, evaluating textbooks, using language labs creatively, and preparing effective exercises and drills. The author ends each chapter of this new edition with questions for research and discussion -- a useful classroom tool -- and provides an up-to-date bibliography that facilitates further understanding of such matters as the bilingual classroom.
