A Reading and Writing Program Using Language-Experience Methodology Among Adult ESL Students in a Basic Education Program. Volunteer Tutor Manual.
Cohen, Judy; And Others
This manual is designed to aid volunteer tutors to use the LEX [language experience] Process for English Reading Instruction Manual (see note) to provide survival and functional English as a second language (ESL) to immigrant and minority people. The Process employs the methods of "language experience" in response to the widely varied language abilities of the students. Those students who are literate and who have survival-level communication skills, available in another component of the program, are the target students of the model. This volunteer tutor's manual contains four sections. The first section introduces the LEX process, states the requirements of volunteers, and explains the basic teaching strategies of the process. The following two sections of the manual apply the language experience process first to reading one's own language, and then to reading the language of others. Finally, the last section illustrates the teaching of language skills through a sample lesson plan. (KC)
