Teaching ESL at CUNY.
Gonzales, Barbara, Ed.
This compilation of brief articles on aspects of training in English as a second language (ESL) at the City University of New York (CUNY) serves also as an introduction to the many facets of ESL instruction. Characteristics of ESL students are described and differentiated. Several typical programs are described. The needs of ESL students outside the classroom are dealt with. An overview of the history of ESL instruction precedes discussions of specific aspects of methodology, which focus on theory into practice and teacher education. An annotated bibliography of 11 basic works is included. Finally, abstracts of presentations at the 1981 CUNY ESL Council Conference deal with strategies for tailoring courses to help ESL students make the transition into the mainstream of college. (JB)
