Scope and Sequence for High School English as a Second Language Instruction.
Berkson, Alan; And Others
The scope and sequence for high school English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction outlines the goals, objectives, skills, and assessment techniques for an integrated, holistic curriculum for the ESL program found in most Chicago public high schools. It is not coordinated with specific instructional materials, but designed to be adaptable and flexible and used with teaching strategies and methods of the teacher's choice. Five skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, writing, and social) are targeted, with objectives for each to be integrated in actual instruction. The objectives for each skill area reappear through three language proficiency levels, to be retaught in greater depth at each level. English grammar is not a primary focus, but is to be included as needed to teach specific skills and enrich learning objectives. Checklists are provided for teacher use during assessment and observation, and suggestions are made for situational evaluation and assessment portfolios at each skill level. (Contains 17 references.)
