English as a Second Language. Curriculum Guide.
Bethke, Patricia; And Others
Intended as a primary reference for teachers in Triton College's English as a Second Language (ESL) program, this curriculum guide determines course content for six levels of instruction and supplemental courses. Introductory materials discuss use of the guide and provide introductions to the three core components into which each level is divided: practical life competencies, structures, and communicative skills. Content is then provided for each of the six levels in the program--Pre-Level I (Beginning Conversation) and Levels I-V. Topics are listed that should be covered within each of the three core components for that level. Appendixes include a needs assessment for determining topics students wish to discuss in class (Levels III-V); list of suggested teaching methods, techniques, and strategies; list of common American gestures (non-verbal communication); Triton College ESL textbook options; and Triton resources, both materials in the Adult Basic Education library and handouts for dissemination.
