Washington State Core Competencies Model Curriculum: English as a Second Language, Level 1A/1B, Version 1.0.
Templin-Imel, Garnet; Hagen, Stacey, Ed.
Washington State's model curriculum for competency-based adult education in English as a Second Language prescribes educational and performance objectives for two levels of instruction and offers suggestions for instructional activities and student assessment. The curriculum is based on core competencies in five areas: listening/observing; speaking; reading; writing; and computation. An introductory section answers common questions about the use of the curriculum in the classroom. Subsequently, separate sections outline the competencies for each of the five areas, at each of the two instructional levels. Each of these sections contains more than one core competency. For each competency, an overview is given and a detailed outline of each related performance objective is presented, including appropriate individual and group activities, related structures, vocabulary, resources or materials, and criteria for evaluation of student performance. Appended materials include additional games and bibliographies of student materials, visual aids, teacher resources, and computer software. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
