An Annotated Bibliography of Adult ESL Instructional Materials.
Escobar, Joanna Sculley; Daugherty, John
This annotated bibliography of adult English as a second language (ESL) student materials, available at the Illinois ESL/Adult Basic Education (ABE) Services Center, was prepared for adult ESL administrators, coordinators, teachers, and teacher aides to provide a representative sampling of materials available and to assist in the selection of instructional materials suitable for adult ESL programs. Although the bibliography includes materials considered appropriate for high school ESL, Adult Basic Education, and native English speakers, all are evaluated from the perspective of the adult ESL student. For each entry the target population, target language background, student educational level presumed, student performance ability presumed, teaching approach, pacing, frequency of use of illustrations and answers, and approximate reading level are identified. Each is also rated on a five-point evaluative scale in several language areas and on several life skills. A section for comments provides additional information on supplementary materials and those areas requiring clarification or further explanation. Entries are categorized under the following curriculum areas: Basic texts, composition, spelling, conversation, pronunciation, grammar structure, life-coping skills, reading, listening, vocational/career English, idioms, citizenship/Americanization, specific language background (Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese), multimedia (language master cards, supplementary kits/packets), reference, vocabulary, gaming/simulation, literacy, and science. A list of publishers' addresses is also included. (WL)
