The Teaching of Reading in the English-as-a-Second Language Classroom.
Clark, Susan M.
This paper provides annotations of journal articles and books concerned with reading instruction for English as-a-second-language students. The annotations are arranged into five categories: (1) the need for teaching English as a second language (ESL) to non-English speaking natives with varied backgrounds and wide ranges of ability levels, (2) how the teacher of English should introduce the printed page to the nonnative speaker, (3) the educational goals and objectives with subsequent teaching techniques to motivate readers of English as a second language, (4) advanced readers of English as a second language, and (5) evaluating reading comprehension in the ESL classroom. The paper also contains a summary of the literature. Appendixes include a list of readings for ESL students and a list of eight publishing houses that feature ESL materials. (HOD)
