Training Project for Teachers of Adult ESL Students.
This coordinator's report and training manual are materials from a teacher training project for teachers of English to adult speakers of other languages in state-funded adult education programs in central New Jersey. The 14-page report is a personal narrative with no supporting documentation. It covers objectives, the project's educational (workshop and practicum) and evaluation (continuous self-evaluation and project evaluation) components, survey of participants to determine training workshop content, description of workshop and practicum, learning mediums used during the projects, problems, and participant comments. The training manual contains topics which project participants felt would be beneficial to teachers they would be serving as resources in upcoming training efforts. Topics are classified according to their appropriateness for preservice education, inservice education, or enrichment training for English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers. Implications for training are provided for each topic. Suggestions for preservice training include principles of teaching adults; content, procedure, and expectations; lesson planning; the four skill areas; and grammar. Under inservice training, these topics are offered: group work, issues in error correction, and introduction to the structure of English Current ESL methodologies and their psychological bases and functions and notions are suggested as enrichment training topics.
