Project LEAP: Learning-English-for-Academic-Purposes. Training Manual--Year One and Training Manual--Year Two.
Snow, Marguerite Ann, Ed.
The two training manuals provide activities and exercises intended for use in college-level study groups for students needing assistance with academic English. They were prepared as part of a larger project at California State University at Los Angeles to enhance curricula, instruction, and preparation of students with limited English. In each volume, the first section contains a brief description of the study group program and some exercises designed to build group cohesion and communication. The subsequent three sections in each volume contain activities to accompany study groups for general education courses. In the first manual, these courses include: Humans and their Biological Environment (biology); United States Civilization (history); and Introduction to Psychology. In the second volume, the courses are: Introduction to American Politics and Society (political science); Principles of Sociology; and Oral Communication (speech). The exercises were contributed by a number of individuals. (Contains 25 references.) (MSE)
