Serving Students with Limited English Proficiency: A Guide for Kentucky Vocational Educators.
Adams, Susan B.
This manual is intended to guide Kentucky vocational educators in designing and implementing a program of occupational and English language instruction that will efficiently and sensitively meet the special needs of students with limited English proficiency (LEP). The step-by-step guide aims to identify teachers' existing capabilities that may be appropriately used with these students, plus point out new techniques and resources that other vocational educators across the state and nation have found to be effective in preparing these students for occupational placement. This program manual contains six sections, covering the following topics: (1) introduction--a look at the student with limited English proficiency, review of terms and outreach efforts; (2) assessment of LEP students; (3) selection of a program model--describes several models, such as bilingual vocational education, vocational English as a second language (VESL); prevocational English as a second language, survival ESL, basic skills ESL, literacy ESL, and considerations for selecting program components; (4) funding sources; (5) program implementation; and (6) occupational placement and follow-up. Appendixes list resources that can be used in preparing programs for LEP students, such as guides for competency-based instruction for survival skills, basic skills, home management, and general vocational and literacy ESL; teaching competencies for job-specific ESL instructors; new vocational materials for LEP students; strategies for modifying vocational instructional materials for LEP students; and professional resources for vocational educators of LEP students.
