Adult ESL Suggested Materials List.
Mrowicki, Linda; Terdy, Dennis
Four major categories are included in this annotated bibliography of materials for adult English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. The categories are: (1) general purpose ESL; (2) special purpose ESL; (3) teacher resources; and (4) ESL administrator resources. The criteria used in selecting the materials are that the materials are frequently used and highly recommended by practitioners in the field of adult ESL, and that they best represent appropriate content and methodology for the adult. In addition to basic textbooks, the general purpose category cites materials on listening, conversation and oral communication, literacy and reading, writing and composition, grammar and structure, pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms and dictionaries. The special purpose materials address employment-related, vocational, and pre-academic instruction. The teacher resources include basic and specialized materials on adult ESL. ESL administrator resources are also provided. A list of publishers and their addresses is appended. (DC)
