HESL and MESL: The Teaching of History and Math as Components of an English as a Second English [Language] Program.
Wissot, Jay
English Record, v21 n4 p68-73 Apr 1971
Within a school curriculum featuring English as a second language, classes such as History for English as a Second Language and Math for English as a Second Language can play an important role. In these classes, the teacher can present content-subject matter, keeping in mind the linguistic capabilities of the students. Principles are not watered down; rather, they are presented in terms of the linguistic achievement of the student. In math, individual mathematical knowledge determines the placement of the student. Such classes are best taught by the English as a second language teacher, because he knows and understands the linguistic problems of the students and he has more experience with adapting materials for the foreign-born student. When the student's linguistic ability makes competing in English feasible, such classes should be discontinued. (VM)
