Setting an Agenda for Study in Home-Based ESL Classes with Native Speakers of Spanish.
Spener, David
A method for volunteer teachers to help students set learning objectives in a home-based English-as-a-Second-Language program for native Spanish-speakers is presented. The philosophy is that in this kind of learning program, real-life language situations are most appropriate for language study and mastery, and that those situations are best chosen by the students themselves. The method involves asking questions of the group as a whole concerning English language use, and difficulties, goals, and personal interests. Each student responds in turn to each question, and responses are recorded. Themes are then extracted from the responses and prioritized by the group. A planning form is included.
