Cultural Orientation 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 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 a "teaching point index," which cross references cultural orientation topics with the lesson plans, activities, and other resource materials found in the manual. The bulk of the volume consists of a curriculum lesson guide divided into two parts. The first part consists of activity guides based on 42 teaching points that form the core curriculum content of the orientation program. The second part consists of lesson plans arranged in outline form to cover methodology and provide background information. The topics, or teaching points, are categorized under the headings of general introduction, communication, housing, employment, consumerism and finance, community services, health and sanitation, life styles, sponsorship and resettlement, and the transit process.
