English as a Second Language ESL Curriculum Guide, Secondary Level.
Gonzalez, Barbara; Thompson, Carla
The English as a second language curriculum outlined in this guide was developed to meet the needs of non-English-speaking secondary school students in Texas. Emphasis is laid on the development of survival language skills. Two levels of instruction are presented, in which the teacher is asked to coordinate activities, materials, and evaluation procedures of his/her own choice around a number of skills objectives. Objectives are classified as general, structural (covering grammar), or content/life-functioning. Supplementing the outline of objectives are a sample calendar for a year's worth of subjects to be covered, a sample weekly overview of activities, and a sample daily lesson plan. Finally, a brief essay on "Humanizing Hints for Second Language Teaching" is appended. (JB)
