Help for ESL Learners.
Petrello, Barbara A.
When curriculum developers and project directors plan in-service training courses for the purpose of improvement of instruction in special programs, they often fail to include support staff members such as learning disability teacher consultants, guidance counselors, social workers, school librarians, and other support personnel in the target group to be reached by the training. These staff members should be recognized as potential sources of help for ESL (English as a second language) learners. An ESL in-service course designed to supplement the skills of a wide variety of support personnel is described. The major aspects of ESL education and the special needs of ESL pupils in Grades K-12 are treated in the course. In addition, the staff members enrolled in this in-service training course are involved in several participant-oriented activities, including a cross-cultural communications training simulation experience.
