Transcultural Education Model. A Guide for Developing Transitional ESL/LEP and Bilingual Programs Kindergarten through Adult Education.
Donaldson, Judy P.
The Transcultural Education Model presents a unified working model for teaching limited English proficient, English-as-Second-Language (ESL), or English-as-Second-Language transcultural (ESLT) students to read, write, and speak English. The model is designed for students and teachers in elementary, secondary, and adult schools. The model is presented to help educators answer questions concerning qualifications for ESL teachers, components of ESL programs, and ESL materials. In seven chapters, several topics are addressed including a comparison of ESL and ESLT, and discussions of student assessment, and instructional focus. A sample materials guide catalog, step charts, student progress charts, and lesson plans, materials, and methods are appended. A language/cultural test battery is also appended.
