Pre-Service Training Model for TESOL/ABE Teachers and Teacher-Aides.
Southwestern Cooperative Educational Lab., Albuquerque, NM.
Developed by the Proteus Adult Education Team of Visalia, Calif., this preservice training model, the result of a project for teachers and teacher-aides of Mexican American adult students, recommends a structure of 30 hours intensive training conducted over a period of 2 weeks (to be followed by weekly 2 1/2-hour inservice sessions). This booklet contains materials and suggestions for the four preservice training objectives: 1) to give the participants an understanding of their motivation in wanting to work in an ABE/TESOL program (adult basic education/teaching English to speakers of other languages); 2) to give them a thorough understanding of the psychology of the adult learner; 3) to give them a first-hand experience of the difficulties involved in learning another language; and 4) to instruct the teacher in TESOL techniques and methodology. Under objective 1 are questions suggested for use in small group discussions. Under objective 2 are an outline on factors to be considered in training adults plus questions and suggestions for micro-lab and role play techniques. The remaining 73 pages, for objective 4, cover initial theory orientation and practical demonstration lessons based on these concepts of the TESOL class: sound drills, pattern practice, vocabulary development, controlled conversation, reading, writing, and testing, warm ups, games, etc. Suggested readings and speakers also included.
