Teaching English to Refugee Adults: A Guide for Volunteers, Volunteer Coordinators, and Tutors. Adult Education Series #10. Refugee Education Guide. Revised.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC. Language and Orientation Resource Center.
This guide for establishing a program to instruct adult refugees in English as a second language (ESL) emphasizes the organization of volunteers. The first step in setting up a volunteer program is information gathering, including the identification of needs, resources, students, and volunteers. Procedures are set forth for hiring, screening, and orienting the staff. A basic but thorough introduction to teaching ESL is presented, with a description of the most commonly used teaching methods. Methodology and material selection are combined in a discussion of lesson preparation, which includes a sample lesson plan. The implementation of lesson plans in the classroom is discussed at length. A selected, annotated bibliography of ESL textbooks and suggested teacher resources is appended. (JB)
