ESL VI Curriculum Guide.
This curriculum guide for English as a Second Language (ESL) Level VI is the sixth of six in a Guam Community College ESL project series. The other five guides, a companion teacher's guide and pre- and post-tests are available separately (see note). The entire project centers around the Peabody Kits P, Level P, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and the Articulation Kit. Level VI expands trade and technical knowledge into specific fields: Construction Trades, Mechanical, Electro-Mechanical, Engineering, and Business. It continues reading readiness begun in Level V and contains the beginning writing segment of the ESL program. Aimed at a trade and technical, adult-based learning experience, the 40 lessons are structured for the adult learner and adult-learner interest with emphasis on Guam and island living. Each lesson lists materials (coded to the Peabody kits), objective, and method and has three parts. Drill A reviews the previous lesson materials, Drill B develops and expands new vocabulary and presents stated objectives, and Drill C continues B or adds additional exercises. After the first 20 lessons, the lessons reach back 20 lessons to develop the more important items from that lesson. Written with an absent or remote student in mind, the lessons are intended to be taped by the professor with pauses for student responses. (YLB)
