A Trainer's Guide to Building English Proficiency.
Dodge, Diane T.; And Others
The trainer's guide, designed to be used in conjunction with a classroom teacher's handbook and resource guide for educators involved in planning and implementing bilingual education programs for new populations of limited English proficient (LEP) students, contains two parts. The first part addresses school administrators and examines the decisions and tasks required at each stage of the process of change, including awareness, problem-solving, system-building, program implementation, and institutionalization. The second part addresses those who support teachers and outlines strategies to assist teachers in adapting instruction and materials for LEP students, including approaches to teacher training (resource centers, workshops, in-classroom assistance, staff meetings, seminars and courses, and newsletters), learning about cultural issues and first and second language acquisition as they relate to the LEP student, assessing the LEP student, defining goals and objectives for the LEP student, selecting teaching strategies and classroom management techniques, selecting/adapting/developing instructional materials, and evaluation of the training. An index concludes the document. (MSE)
