Mainstreaming the Non-English Speaking Student.
Rodrigues, Raymond J.; White, Robert H.
As part of a series of sharply focused booklets based on concrete educational needs, this booklet is designed to provide teachers with the best educational theory and research on mainstreaming non-English speaking children in regular classrooms and to present descriptions of classroom activities that are related to the described theory. Section one of the booklet develops a rationale, based on current theory and research, by which classroom teachers can prepare themselves to mainstream students with limited English speaking abilities. Section two of the booklet contains selected methods and materials for teaching English as a second language to some students in a regular classroom, particularly those that depend on peer tutoring. Appendixes contain 17 learning activities, an outline of self-directing sources for individualized instruction in English as a second language (ESL), an approach for developing methods and materials for starting ESL programs, a sample plan for an open language experience (shopping at the supermarket), and a discussion of procedures for testing ESL students (observations, oral interviews, cloze tests, and dictation). A selected bibliography is attached for teachers of ESL students. (RL)
