Staff Development Microteaching Workshop in Adult Basic Education-TESOL: A Region V Project. Final Report.
Bartley, Diana E.
The immediate purpose of the 1973 tri-state (Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin) Adult Basic Education workshop, a Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages project, at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (four and one-half days) was the training or retraining of teachers in English as a second dialect or English as a foreign language to adults with an educational equivalency of eighth grade or less. The workshops involved 35 participants in a program sensitizing them to the linguistic factors as well as the social conditions which make up their teaching environments. Microteaching sessions formed the core of the workshop. Also offered were lecture-discussion sessions and seminars. The workshop program applied the national program's seminars in applied linguistics, history, and culture to a regional level. Evaluation indicated the workshop to be a successful and satisfying experience. Future modifications seemed to be directed toward creating a more practical cultural workshop, Approximately one-third of the document consists of appendixes. (EA)
