English as a Second Language Resource Manual, Volume I.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC. Southeast Asia Regional Service Center.
This compilation of instructional materials, activities, and curricula is based on materials developed in an intensive English as a second language (ESL) and cultural orientation program conducted in Indochinese refugee processing centers in Southeast Asia beginning in 1980. Students in the 14- to 20-week program ranged in age from 16 to 55 years. This volume begins with an overall outline for curriculum development, which describes how the implementing agencies jointly developed competency-based ESL curriculum guides for use throughout the region. Two curriculum guides cover different levels of English competency, the first a beginning level, and the second three more advanced levels. Both guides provide charts outlining learning activities for specific topics (such as classroom orientation) and competencies (such as self-introduction). The learning activities are categorized according to skill, such as listening and writing, and cultural notes are provided. The volume concludes with descriptions of a placement evaluation and an ESL proficiency test; the placement evaluation is appended. (JB)
