An annotated bibliography of 224 items drawn from the literature on instruction in English as a second language (ESL) includes citations from bibliographic databases (Educational Resources Information Center, Bilingual Education Bibliographic Abstracts, Bilingual Research On-Line, and Microcomputer Courseware Resource On-Line), professional journals, and other publications in the field. The items are listed in four categories: ESL instructional approaches, ESL curriculum organization, ESL instructional materials, and language learning theories. The items were selected according to criteria of applicability to K-12 education, current use of the approach in ESL classrooms in the United States, inclusion of the approach in ESL teacher training curricula, and relevance to current language learning theory. The citations contain information about the title, author, source, publication date, publication type, length, target grade levels, approach, theory, item content, student characteristics addressed, teacher requirement for use, skill or concept addressed, and proficiency level targeted.
