Introduction:

600단어를 이해할 수 있는 어린이들이 이용할 수 있는 영어 학습서이다. 영어교재 전문 출판사인 Pro Lingua Associates에서 펴낸 어린이 영어 책 중 가장 인기 있고 잘된 책이다. 조부모와 손녀 간의 다정한 관계와 여러 민족의 이주자들이 섞여서 공부하는 미국의 학교생활 등을 소재로 꾸며진 영어 학습서로서 바른 영어 읽기, 듣기, 말하기, 쓰기의 교재이다.

이 교재의 특징은 어린이의 정서와 발달 단계에 맞춰 학습효과를 높일 수 있게 꾸며져 있다. 첫째로 이야기의 지문은 왼쪽에 있고 오른쪽에는 그 이야기를 상세하게 도해하는 그림이 실려 있다. 먼저 왼쪽의 text를 가르친 다음 말하기 연습을 위해 그림만을 보게한 후 배운 문장을 재현해 보도록 한다. 그다음에는 테이프를 틀어 주고 받아 쓰게 한 다음 학생들 자신이 책을 대조해 가면서 틀린 것을 고치게 한다. 물론 이때 틀린 단어의 철자에 대한 지도가 필요하다. 왜 그렇게 철자 해야 하는지를 가르치는 것이다. 만일 cat를 cat로 썼다면 영어에서는 a 자 아에서는 [k]//ㅋ/ 음을 내려면 c자를 써야하고 k자는 그 다음에 e,ㅑ,y자가 올 때만 쓴다는 것을 가르쳐 주어야 한다, 예를 들면:
kettle, king, sky 등이다. 물론 교사가 영어의 발음과 철자의 조화에 관한 지식이 있어야 이런 지도가 가능하다. 이에 관한 좋은 책으로는 외국어연수사에서 펴낸 영어의 발음과 철자의 조화란 책이 나와 있다. 다음에는 여러 지문에 나와 있는 문장을 하나씩 골라 Substitution Drill을 시킨다.

미국에 이민 온 러시아 출신의 서구 사회의 아름다운 가족 관계 특히 조부모와 손자 간의 친밀한 관계를 배경으로 쓰인 이 책은 손녀가 문맹자인 할머니에게 영어를 가르쳐서 글을 읽고 쓰게 만들고, 할머니는 손녀에게 배운 영어로 자신과 그의 남편이 미국에 이민 오기 전에 Russia에서 살았을 때의 자전적 소설을 썼다는 이야기를 소재로 하여 영어를 바르게 읽고 듣고 말하고 쓰는 교육을 시키는 영어 학습서이다.

Introduction

Grandparents are Special is a reader for upper elementary and middle
school students who are learning to read English as a second
language in an English speaking setting. It is a story about the
importance in our lives of special people such as our grandparents.
A Teacher's Guide with photocopyable worksheets accompanies the
reader.

Description

The student book contains a text of approximately 2000 words, written
at the 600-word level. This is the story in brief: Olga goes to her
grandparents' hair salon every day after school, because her parents
are at work. She helps Grandpa and Grandma with chores. In school,
she and her friends from many different countries are learning to read
English. One day she asks her grandmother to read a book to her.
She is stunned to find out that her grandmother can't read, but
Grandma tells her true stories and cooks special treats from her old
country (Russia) for Olga and her class. Olga decides to teach
Grandma to read. They learn together. At school, Olga writes down
one of Grandma's stories, and the teacher suggests that they
organise an open house to show their work. Students can bring
members of their families, so Olga invites her Grandma, who reads
her story.

Many different themes and subjects are touched on in the story, such
as:

  • People who are special to you
  • Languages and countries
  • Nutrition
  • Safety
  • Weather and seasons
  • Journal writing
  • Family
  • Jobs and occupations
  • Responsibilities and being helpful
  • Basic human rights
  • Telling a story and interviewing
  • Ethnic foods
  • Doing something special for someone special to you

There are about 2000 words in the text, and over 90% of the words
occur within the 600-word lexicon. If students know 600 basic words,
they will find the text comprehensible. This set of basic words is
based partly on word frequency, so the most frequently encountered
words in English are included. The lexicon includes the following 16
lexical, semantic, and grammatical sets:

  • Classroom language (e.g., listen, ask, answer)
  • Simple linguistic metalanguage (e.g., sentence, letter, word)
  • Social interaction (e.g., hello, goodbye, sorry, thanks)
  • Words for self-expression (e.g., need, want, have, feel)
  • Function words (prepositions, determiners, pronouns)
  • Words for general description (e.g., big, small, beautiful)
  • Numbers
  • Days of the week and time expressions
  • Months of the year and seasons
  • Basic colours
  • Principal body parts
  • Food, eating, and meals
  • Money and shopping
  • Weather
  • Family
  • Movement

The accompanying teacher's guide is divided into two parts. The first
part includes 13 lesson plans that can be used to explore the content
of the text in a variety of ways. The lesson plans suggest different
procedures and the use different kinds of interaction, as well as
providing activities for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level
students. These lesson plans focus on the themes of the story and
help students explore the relevance of the story to their own lives.

The second part of the teacher's guide consists of photocopyable
worksheets designed to supplement the lesson plans with specific
activities related to the themes. There is one worksheet for each
lesson plan.

Evaluation

The way this story is told and its content make the book suitable for
young learners. However, the book is too long for children who are
just starting to learn English as a foreign language. This book is most
appropriate for children ranging from 6 to 8 years old, who are
beginning to develop skill in reading English as a second language,
especially in an English-speaking setting.

In my point of view, the pictures that illustrate the student book are
old-fashioned. Children nowadays are used to very elaborate
illustrations, and they may not identify with these pictures.

The teacher's guide that accompanies Grandparents are Special
offers well-organised material for teachers. Its lesson plans are
interesting and useful for a reflexive, interactive, and communicative
approach to teaching. The teacher's guide is also useful because it
provides different procedures and activities for mixed ability classes,
and suggestions for different kinds of interaction inside the classroom.

Conclusion

This material is useful for working in the classroom over an extended
period of time, because of the length of the text, the number of
themes that it deals with, and the quantity of activities that can be
done. Grandparents are Special is a suitable tool to involve students in
significant reading activities, since it deals with relevant and global
subjects that are very important in values education, such as
multiculturalism, health, important people, and so forth.

To sum up, Grandparents are Special is a learner centred book that
facilitates the teaching of reading in English in an English-speaking
setting with a communicative approach.
