A Guide. Life Situations: Incorporating Community Resources into the Adult ESL Curriculum.
Brown, Sandra
"Life Situations," a program designed for adult ESL (English as a second language) students, expands the curriculum through the use of community resources: trips, speakers, films, and related materials. These are incorporated into topical units of two to four weeks duration, along with dialogues and role playing using structures and vocabulary appropriate to the students' level of ability. Survival skills that students need in their everyday lives are covered in such topics as Community Services, Consumer Education, Cultural Awareness, Employment, Family Life, Government/Citizenship/Law, Health, and Recreation. This guide contains lists of suggested speakers, trips, real-life materials, audiovisual materials, and brochures from which to choose. Also included is a checklist of some oral and written classroom strategies (cognitive, affective, psychomotor) that can be used for presentation, reinforcement, and/or evaluation of "Life Situations" objectives. A list of recommended resources, such as commercial books, picture sets, and free and low-cost materials, completes the guide. (Author/CFM)
