Resource Manual for Teachers of Non-English Speaking Adults. Fourth Edition.
Alesi, Gladys E.; Brain, Joseph J.
Designed especially for the inexperienced teacher or volunteer, the 35-page manual intends to help the teacher identify appropriate methods and materials for use with adults to whom English is a new language, particularly those who are preparing for citizenship. Prepared by professionally trained, experienced teachers, the resource manual places emphasis on vocabulary and language patterns. An attempt is made to describe in nontechnical terms the specific needs of the student, to clarify the goals of the teacher with respect to such needs, and to suggest some practical techniques for organizing lessons. A 23-page bibliography selectivity lists available material in several categories: (1) principles and methodology, (2) selected American immigration and citizenship conference publications, (3) readings on immigration, integration, and ethnic backgrounds, (4) bibliographies, (5) textbooks for beginners, (6) textbooks for intermediates, and (7) textbooks for advanced students. A 46-page appendix offers drill techniques, a sample placement test, and drill activities. (MW)
