Adapt Instruction for LEP Vocational Students. One of Four Performance-Based Modules To Prepare Vocational Educators To Serve LEP Students.
Friedenberg, Joan E.; And Others
This module is one in a series of four performance-based modules developed to prepare vocational educators to serve limited English proficient (LEP) students. It is designed to help the vocational teacher learn how to adapt instructional techniques and materials to serve LEP students effectively. The module is made up of a series of four learning experiences, some providing background information, some providing practice experiences, and others combining these two functions. An introduction lists terminal and enabling objectives, resources, learning experiences, and optional reading. The first three learning experiences cover: (1) the kinds of information about the LEP students that the teacher needs, how to obtain it, and how to use it in the classroom; (2) various people and services in the school and community that can help the teacher work with LEP students; and (3) how to adapt instructional techniques and materials by simplifying the English and using students' native languages. The final learning experience requires the teacher to demonstrate the skill in an actual vocational instructional situation where the teacher is an intern, student teacher, or inservice teacher. An assessment form for the final learning experience is included. (YLB)
