Manual for ESL Teacher Training and Staff Development.
Burtoff, Michele; And Others
This packet is presented for use as a trainer's manual in offering technical assistance and teacher training to refugee English as a second language (ESL) programs. It is the result of a working session of experienced professionals that was convened by the Language and Orientation Resource Center (LORC), and it presumes some previous knowledge of the content as well as experience on the part of those who will use it. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction, definitions of technical assistance which the trainer may be asked to provide, a description of the keys to effective training, topics of concern to the trainer and to the ESL client, the planning and presentation of workshops, and a discussion of resources. It is noted that the third section is the core of the manual because this section provides the trainer with the basis on which to develop any training session regardless of topic. In addition, this section presents the content that should be taught to other trainers. (Author/AMH)
