British Columbia Dept. of Education, Richmond. Modern Languages Services Branch.
A two-volume resource book addresses the particular needs of English as a Second Language (ESL), English language center, and transitional skills teachers. The volumes are designed to help meet the language and educational needs of ESL students in British Columbia. Volume I provides a framework for the design of language instruction as part of subject area lessons. It illustrates the use of the framework by including lessons from a wide range of subject areas, including social studies, mathematics, consumer education, foods and nutrition, science, writing, and art. Topics covered include: (1) thinking skills (e.g., taxonomy of skills, cause and effect reasoning, and thought and language); and (2) language skills (e.g., particular styles, processing of discourse, language structure to express thinking processes, and special vocabulary). Extensive examples are given. Contains approximately 70 references. (LB)
