Language Arts - English help on-line:
The Info-Exchange is designed as a communicative guide for
language-arts classrooms for false-beginners to high-intermediate learners.
As a communicative guide, it offers a wide variety of situations
through which learners can share what they know, feel, or understand with a
partner, a small group, or the entire class.
The purpose of this text is to provide English-language learners with
myriad opportunities for thinking, problem solving, and meaningful
communicative exchange. It is
hoped that language teachers/ facilitators/ educators will find the text
helpful in providing their students with sufficiently challenging material.
The Info-Exchange: A Communicative Guide to Natural English Conversation is composed of six units: A Good Beginning, Breaking the Ice, Exchanging Information, Giving and Getting Directions, Simulations and Mysteries. Unit 1: A Good Beginning deals with psychological issues that sometimes mitigate a learnerís success and with voice issues as related to tension and to the sharing of oneís self. Unit 2: Breaking the Ice covers greetings, introductions and getting to know others. Unit 3: Exchanging Information progresses from descriptive language through explanatory language to comparison and contrast. Unit 4: Giving and Getting Directions covers street directions, assembly directions, recipes, prescription dosage and organization. Unit 5: Simulations cover a wide range of issues and provide various easy to moderately difficult challenges in the fields of education, environment, ethics and politics. Unit 6: Mysteries contains two mysteries that the learners are invited to think about, perform and solve. (126 pages; 45 ~ 65 hours of in-class activities, depending on class size and organization.)
