Video-Aid ESL [English as a Second Language].
These three video-based learning modules, covering job search skills, career planning, and interpersonal communication skills on the job, were designed for use in basic English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. The Job Search Skills module covers topics such as warm and cold behaviors, identifying job skills, job interviews, and application forms. The Career Planning module focuses on topics including body positions signifying openness or control, setting short- and long-term career goals, the difference between a career and an occupation, training programs, and finding and analyzing information about careers. The last module, Interpersonal Communications, considers topics such as territory, non-verbal interaction, and facial cues to emotion. Each of these modules includes the following materials: a five-hour lesson plan; vocabulary, definitions, and sentences using the vocabulary; information on body language cues and two-sentence micro-dialogues calling for the use of these cues; related grammar and sentence patterns; four-sentence mini-dialogues; a complete videoscript which students are to rehearse and perform, if possible before a videocamera; supplemental information and exercises; and an annotated bibliography. Instructions for the use of videotapes prepared to model each packet's contents are also included. (KL)
