Practice-Centered Teacher Training for TESOL.
Bartley, Diana
The 1971 and 1972 summer Institutes in Adult Basic Education-TESOL (ABE-TESOL) held at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee are described. The purpose of the institutes was to train experienced teachers of adults who speak either a foreign language or a nonstandard dialect of English and who have achieved the educational equivalence of eighth grade or less. The teachers were trained in contemporary theories and methodologies in a practice-centered teacher training program based on in-circuit television and microteaching. There were three basic components of the institutes: (1) the seminars and workshops, (2) the microteaching, and (3) conferences with community consultants. In addition the program provided participants with two types of extra-curricular learning activities: (1) opportunities for learning about related government-funded projects and (2) visits to the Milwaukee ABE Centers and other ABE-TESOL programs in Milwaukee. The evaluation procedures included pre- and posttesting, class visits, and participant conferences with the evaluators. (PMP)
