Limited English Proficiency Students in Vocational Education: A Handbook for Vocational Educators.
Phelps, L. Allen
This handbook provides vocational teachers with some ideas, strategies, and resources for working effectively with limited English-proficient (LEP) students in their classrooms. The handbook includes four basic sections: (1) suggested teacher competencies, (2) instructional strategies, (3) instructional resources, and (4) reference documents. A list of the various skills that vocational teachers need in working with LEP students is presented in section 1. In section 2, a series of eight important strategies for teaching LEP students is identified and described. It includes such strategies as conducting informal language assessment, adapting instruction, adapting materials, and involving LEP students in vocational student organizations. Section 3 on instructional resources identifies the types of services and assistance that LEP students and vocational teachers should receive from programs, counselors, and administrators concerned with English as a second language. The final section lists and describes several resource documents and sources where further information and assistance can be obtained. (KC)
