Teaching techniques, lessons, and activities for teaching English as a second language (ESL) in grades K through 12 are suggested. Cross-cultural suggestions, supportive ethno-pedagogical methods, and ideas for implementing the language experience approach to reading are provided within the framework of an activity-based program and an audiolingual approach to language learning. Lessons and activities are organized around monthly themes for September through May in order to facilitate cross-cultural interaction. Holiday and seasonal vocabulary items are built into the lessons. Seven selected articles provide suggestions on teaching students from other language and cultural backgrounds. They cover such topics as the English alphabet, teaching ESL reading and writing, and cultural differences which may influence learning and classroom communication. A testing supplement is presented in a separate volume. (RW)
