Vocational Education for Limited English Speaking Students: A Handbook for Educators.
Vernon, Valerie J.
This handbook was developed to assist vocational educators in meeting the needs of the growing Limited English Speaking (LES) population in the regular classroom. The guide is organized in five sections. The first section of the handbook provides a list of needed teacher competencies for teachers of LES students in regular vocational classrooms, while section II gives specific strategies for implementing these competencies. Section III describes sources of instructional support that can be found in the school setting. Cultural background and educational needs of two cultures, Hispanic and Indochinese, are found in Section IV. The final section contains appendices which detail where instructional materials and resource assistance specifically designed for LES students can be obtained. (Bilingual materials are listed in this section.) (KC)
