English as a Second Language for Job Training and Employment: Special Demonstration Project.
Johnson, Robert S.
The San Diego demonstration project provides occupationally oriented English as a Second Language (ESL) materials aimed at preparing students for job training, on-the-job training, or entry-level employment, mainly in semi-skilled occupations. The job-readiness curriculum is planned to bring the monolingual Spanish speaking adult student to a proficiency level in English in approximately 1,000 hours of instruction. Presented in terms of performance objectives, the course curriculum is divided into three phases: survival English, English for the world of work and selected occupational clusters, and English pattern usage. The daily lesson plans, student evaluations, and tests presented in the report are all cross-referenced to a list of these basic performance objectives. The first section of the document provides: (1) specific performance objectives, (2) student information and profiles, (3) student evaluations, (4) written and oral tests utilized, (5) materials and aids, (6) reference materials and audiovisual equipment, and (8) evaluation and recommendations. Section 2, making up the bulk of the document, offers dated lesson plans organized according to: (1) subject matter, (2) performance objective code number, (3) materials and aids, (4) material code, (5) approaches, (6) English or Spanish instruction, and (7) activities.
