Factors to be Considered in Designing an Instructional Program in English for Spanish Speakers.
Molina, Hubert
The design for an instructional program whose objective is the acquisition of English must be viewed within wide parameters. The dimensions discussed are those that must be accounted for by a designer of materials appropriate for particular learners. These parameters are discussed to make teachers aware of what to look for and what kinds of results to expect from materials. The monumental task of presenting precoding and encoding information to a learner makes it necessary to organize and reduce this information to dimensions that can reasonably be taught in the classroom. The paper points out that the basis for the selection of information that comprises a learner's dialect is concerned with what the learner must know to begin to function in a different culture and strategies by which to add to such information.
