Materials for Tutor Training in an ESL Program for Migrant Workers: A Handbook.
Community Action Southwest, Waynesburg, PA.
The results of a project to develop training materials for volunteer English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) tutors, and to develop instructional materials for their migrant worker students, are presented here. The first section describes the federally-funded tutor training project, initially intended to focus on migrant workers whose first language was Spanish, train a small group of tutors, and evaluate the training's effectiveness. The second section contains the ESL instruction packet and handbook used by the tutors in training and provided for their subsequent use in instruction. These materials include guidelines for classroom behavior and procedures, questionnaires and checklists for use in evaluating and placing students, notes on intercultural communication and cultural sensitivity, forms to be used in instructional planning, suggested classroom activities designed to reinforce ESL language principles, and an annotated bibliography.
