Frank, Gloria; And Others
This booklet consists of a list of instructional objectives and a content outline for the beginning and intermediate levels of the Montgomery County (Maryland) public ESL program. The publication was prepared to identify performance objectives and to provide guidelines for teachers and administrators, both for teaching and for forming realistic expectations of the students. Objectives for both levels include mastery of the four language skills through the audiolingual approach. For the beginning level, course content is centered on situations and topics which the student will encounter in the United States. These topics include classroom and school procedures, food, social formulas, numbers and measurements, health and safety, weather, shopping, family and occupations, home and community, recreation, and transportation. Grammar and vocabulary relevant to the given topic are introduced in each unit. The intermediate level is organized into structural units, each one dealing with a specific issue of grammar. Vocabulary and situations for practice are left to the discretion of the teacher. (CLK)
