Washington State Core Competencies Model Curriculum: English as a Second Language, Level 3. Version 1.0
Hagen, Stacey, Ed.; And Others
The Washington State Core Competencies Project is designed to implement competency-based adult education in the state's 38 adult basic education programs. A model curriculum was developed and field-tested over several years. The resulting curriculum outline of core competencies for English as a Second Language, level 3, is presented here. The competencies are statements of student outcomes, organized around a sequence of basic skills. They are more general than traditional outcome statements because they are intended for use in a wide variety of settings. Core competencies are divided into five discrete areas: listening/observing; speaking; reading; writing; and computation for daily living needs (e.g., money management, measurement). For each competency, the curriculum provides the following: a general objective; suggested individual and group activities; related structures, vocabulary, and materials or resources; evaluation methods; recommendations for expansion of skills; notes on distinctive features of related structures in languages that may be students' native tongues; prerequisite skills or knowledge; possible life skills applications; and methods of assessment of the competency. Two bibliographies are appended: an 80-item list of supplementary materials for students and a 43-item list of teacher resources for levels 2 and 3.
