Sourcebooks in ESL Instruction.
Ponder, Roger; Powell, William W.
In an intensive English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program, implementing a sourcebook project affects the design and content of all the courses in a curriculum. Sourcebooks, multimedia collections of materials devoted to a given topic and used in a simulation of academic research, can be adapted for use in independently operated ESL courses as well. Some practical issues to be considered in planning and compiling a workable sourcebook, including the special problem of selecting topics and materials, are discussed. Guidelines and ideas for teaching sourcebook materials and for drawing on the sourcebook resources in classes other than the composition class are given, and suggestions are made for utilizing sourcebooks in independent ESL classes. A sample bibliography for a sourcebook is appended. 23 references. (DJD)
