Hermanson, Marie, Ed.; And Others
This guide offers specific instructions and classroom materials for conducting workshops to train volunteer tutors of English as a Second Language (ESL). The guide contains five modules addressing different aspects and techniques of ESL instruction. Each module contains a preparation checklist for the trainer, objectives and precise procedures for conducting the module, and handouts. The handouts contain charts and narrative information about conducting a class, interacting with students, and organizing course content. The first module covers getting to know the students. The second addresses conversation skills, and includes instructions for using the Freirean discussion technique and materials for discussing interactions on a bus. The third module is on pronunciation, and provides a dialogue and minimal pair exercises for classroom use. The fourth module describes the Total Physical Response method of language instruction, with ideas for class activities. The fifth module outlines the language experience approach for teaching literacy, and includes a vocabulary and phrase list. An accompanying audio cassette can be obtained from the Oregon State Department of Education. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
