Materials Development and Lesson Planning for Elementary School ESL Instruction.
Bisagna, Joanne
This paper is the narrative portion of a workshop presentation on lesson planning and materials development for ESL instruction. The specific materials and lessons which were demonstrated and which are discussed in this paper, had been designed and used in English as a Second Language classes for students ranging from Kindergarten to eighth grade in a Title I program in New York City. Six areas are dealt with: (1) Lesson Planning; (2) Classroom Routines; (3) Independent Activities; (4) Games; (5) Poems, Rhymes and Songs, and (6) Creating and Adapting Materials. The suggestions emphasize the development of communicative competence by the use of functional language in meaningful settings. Activities are discussed which facilitate the use of communicative language in the classroom. Materials are recognized to be most effective when they are prepared or adapted for a particular group of students with particular language needs. All the areas discussed are accompanied by sample exercises, dialogues, games, songs and other activities. (Author/AMH)
