Strategy Notebook: A Compilation of Open-Ended Instructional Strategies and Materials for Beginning ESL and Literacy Learners.
Snyder, Sharon, Ed.; And Others
This strategy notebook is designed as a resource for teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL) and literacy education. It consists of a series of class activities and recommendations for instructional materials contributed to the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) by experienced ESL and literacy teachers. The first section describes instructional activities, subdivided into general and topical strategies. The general strategies are useful for teaching any content, and make use of stories, pictures, and elements of the arts: drama, poetry, music, and drawing. Some are intended to be integrated into the curriculum as regular features of instruction or to take an entire instructional cycle to carry out, and still others focus on classroom management issues as opportunities for learning. The topical strategies are sample curriculum units using some of the general strategies outlined previously. The second section of the notebook contains teacher-designed instructional materials, including story books and class exercises, copies of some appropriate materials located in the ICMC learning resource center, and annotated listings of photos, slides, and videos from the learning resource center.
