SUMMARY

Dedicated to meeting the academic needs of high-intermediate- to advance-level students, this book teaches students how to comprehend the spoken English used by instructors and students in college classrooms.The fourth book in the four-book Oral Communication strand of the Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success series, "College Oral Communication 4 "helps students become familiar with academic topics, concepts, and vocabulary; learn academic skills and strategies; acquire the skills needed to ask appropriate-level questions; develop note-taking strategies; participate effectively in academic situations, such as discussions, lectures, study groups, and office meetings; and use information from spoken presentations and notes for academic tasks such as tests or small group discussions. Engaging activities throughout the text help students practice both academic listening and academic speaking.Academic content excerpted from Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high school textbooks familiarizes students with academic subjects across the curriculum and teaches them the listening and speaking skills necessary to succeed in those disciplines. An overall theme, Memory and Learning, unites the content.The Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success competencies, which are based on competencies developed by ESL instructors and administrators in Florida, California, and Connecticut, provide an underlying structure for EAP courses by ensuring a clear articulation of objectives throughout the series.All materials classroom were tested and approved by a board of adjunct instructors to ensure easy-to-use for both full- and part-time instructors."Master Student Tips" areexcerpted from the market-leading first-year-orientation book, "Becoming a Master Student."A wide variety of easy-to-implement assessment tools, designed for both instructor use and self-assessment by students, include student self-assessment at the end of each chapter, student self-assessment tests on the student web site, downloadable tests and quizzes for instructors on the instructor web site.Instructor audio CDs for testing listening comprehension can be packaged with the text.Each chapter is divided into three closely related sections that focus on Effective Academic Listening, Effective Academic Speaking, and Assessing Your Academic Listening and Speaking Skills. This format engages students in note taking, exposes them to speaking situations that mirror the college experience, and teaches them to apply information and skills to objectives in the chapter.Readings, lectures, and discussions on college materials and topics present concepts and language that students will encounter in future college courses.Jones, Steve is the author of 'College Oral Communication 4 ', published 2004 under ISBN 9780618230198 and ISBN 061823019X.
