Groff, Gerry; Enyedi, Andrea
This tutor training guide and handbook are designed to help organize training workshops for the new tutor of English as a Second Language (ESL), and to assist the tutor in understanding this student population and in organizing materials and activities for teaching. Materials for tutors include a discussion of the student population and its particular needs, getting started, classroom techniques, setting goals and objectives, and planning and conducting a lesson. A variety of classroom activities are described, and a list is appended that includes questions to ask students. These questions are designed to help tutors become acquainted with their students' cultures. The following information is provided for trainers: background on linguistics and language teaching theory; an outline for a tutor training workshop; a list of basic structures in English; resource word lists for games; questions to ask tutors about materials used in instruction; and exercises using common idioms. The workshop outline includes suggestions for conversation management within the training session, a listening sensitization exercise, suggested tutoring techniques, an activity using a videotape concerning language teaching through the use of television programs and classroom games and guidelines for selecting teaching materials, teaching idioms, and lesson planning.
