ESL Teacher Training: Worksheets for Teachers of Adult Migrants.
Dickie, J. A.; Lewis, Marilyn
Instructional materials are presented for teachers working with classes of adult migrants at technical institutes, high schools, or community centers in New Zealand. The materials are planned to be used in group training sessions, and the handbook includes suggestions for discussions, group tasks, and individual work. The handbook may be used for a week's in-service course, or the materials may be spread over a number of training sessions. An introductory chapter reviews ways in which the needs of adult migrants are being met in New Zealand (i.e., classes, individual tutoring, self-study, correspondence courses, English for special purpose classes). Subsequent chapters highlight the following topics: (1) issues that arise in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) (teacher concerns, preferred learning styles, using a textbook, and planning work); (2) lesson content (parts of the program, structure, vocabulary, fixed phrases, and cultural content); (3) aspects of language (reading, writing, speaking and listening); and (4) teaching-learning methods (individual teacher's methods, overview, functional approach, and choosing a method). Sample instructional activities and illustrations are provided throughout the book. Contains 3 references. (LB)
