New Beginnings...An Introductory Manual for Non-Professional ESL Volunteers & Tutors.
Friedman, Sandra; Collier, Julie
This guide is designed for new volunteers and tutors giving English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction to limited-English-proficient (LEP) individuals in the United States. An introductory section looks briefly at the demography of LEP populations and the urgency of ESL learning. Five chapters follow. The first offers basic guidelines in planning the content and organization of lessons and includes a sample lesson plan. The second chapter encourages awareness of cultural and ethnicity issues in the classroom and makes specific recommendations for teacher behavior. Chapter three suggests lesson topics to facilitate learners' acculturation, and contains a sample lesson on telephone usage instruction. The fourth chapter contains sample lessons on cultural diversity, holidays and celebrations, filling out employment applications, calling for information, using the local newspaper, and other lesson ideas appropriate for any group. The fifth chapter contains a glossary, a listing of print and organizational resources, and a bibliography. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
