A Model Program for Serving LEP Students. Facilitator's Guide. Impact Programs.
Friedenberg, Joan E.
This guide provides background information, training recommendations, discussion questions and answers, trainee assignment sheets, and answers to the assignment sheets to accompany a 45-minute videotape of a model program for serving limited English proficiency (LEP) students. The script for the audio portion of the videotape is also included. The program is organized in seven parts, following an introduction that defines LEP and provides information on the need for programs for this population. Part I focuses on recruitment, emphasizing that a targeted recruiting effort helps LEP persons gain access to career-vocational programs. Part II emphasizes that assessment should not be used to exclude LEP persons from career-vocational programs and illustrates formal and informal methods of assessment. Part III describes and illustrates more than 15 ways for English-speaking career-vocational teachers to provide bilingual or multilingual instruction and to simplify and clarify their English for LEP students. Part IV describes vocational English as a second language (VESL), VESL lesson development, and techniques for teaching VESL. Part V emphasizes the role of counseling in programs for LEP students, and part VI provides suggestions for job placement for them. The final part explains the importance of a coordinator for the multiple facets of an LEP program. Recommendations for conducting the training workshop also are made. (KC)
