The bulk of the guide consists of specific skill development objectives, content, teaching strategies, and evaluation procedures for each topic at each skill level. Some topics involve daily living and communication skills and vocabulary, and others consist of grammatical constructions. A 50-item bibliography and a list of suggested additional materials are appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
