Authors: Martin R. Gitterman (The City University of New York) 
Book Description:
Teaching Speech to English Language Learners: A Theoretical and Practical Focus provides very specific teaching recommendations aimed at improving the oral communication skills of adult (high school age and beyond) English language learners. The teaching suggestions are proposed in a framework that highlights the link between research/theory (a theoretical focus) and pedagogy (a practical focus). This book should be of interest to those teaching speech courses to English language learners, to those teaching more broad-based English as a second language (ESL) courses with a speech component, to those planning to teach English language learners, and to a range of applied linguists. While the book includes topics typically covered in college speech courses (e.g., public speaking and group communication), the material is addressed in a way that makes it applicable to a wider range of students (i.e., adult English language learners, in general).
