An Annotated Bibliography of Teaching and Learning Materials for Adult Newcomers to Canada.
Cumming, Alister, Ed.; And Others
TESL Canada Journal, n3 spec iss Jan 1993
This bibliography is intended as a resource for teachers and service-providers who work with participants in LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) programs of basic English-as-a-Second-Language education. It lists and describes Canadian teaching materials appropriate for adult immigrants' English language learning and their orientation to, settlement in, and active participation in Canadian life. Its content and organization reflect three levels of language proficiency and cultural adaptation, is comprehensive in its coverage of Canadian print materials, and is accessible to both specialists and lay persons. Bibliographic information provided includes title, author, date, LINC level, length, source, price, supplementary or related materials, subject area, and a brief annotation. The first three sections cite materials for each of the three proficiency levels, and a fourth lists materials for all three levels. Appended materials contain citations according to theme (anti-racist education; citizenship; ESL literacy; vocational English; general language study; grammar; life skills and community resources; speaking and conversation; teacher references; vocabulary), addresses of publishers and distributors, LINC level descriptions, a list of individuals consulted for the project, and correspondence used in consultation.
