Curriculum Guide, English as a Second Language, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve.
Berrios, Ana Teresa; And Others
This curriculum guide provides a detailed description of the program in English as a second language (ESL) in the Newark Public Schools. After an introduction that describes the audiolingual method of teaching foreign languages and that defines briefly the cognitive approach to language instruction and the "silent way," the guide presents the material in seven parts. Parts two and three deal with the philosophy and goals of ESL in Newark. The greatest part of the guide is devoted to: (1) teaching methods and techniques; (2) development of levels and objectives for listening and speaking, reading, writing, and culture; (3) and appendices which provide a large number of class activities and devices. The emphasis is on making the techniques and activities usable by teachers. Each activity is clearly described with regard to procedure and necessary materials; numerous examples of class exercises are provided. Evaluation forms for use by teachers and a bibliography complete the volume. (AMH)
