A Time To Learn--Units 1 & 2. A Resource For Teachers of Bilingual Literacy Learners.
Paine, Miriam, Ed.; And Others
This manual offers assistance for those working with adult, English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) learners who have been long-time residents of Australia. Two specific units of instruction concentrate on past experiences and health concerns for the learners. Unit 1 focuses on past experiences and Unit 2 on health. Various learning approaches are described: whole word recognition versus phonics; psycholinguistic approach to reading; language experience approach; process, genre-based, and composition-based writing approaches; and general language development. Sample programs are described, and worksheets used are included for reference. Each unit contains an introduction, contents list, teachers notes with worksheets, readings, and resources at three experience levels. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (NAV)
