LifePrints 3: ESL for Adults. Teacher's Edition; Teacher's Resource File; [Student Book].
Newman, Christy M.; And Others
Materials for adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction are presented. They are designed to enable adult ESL learners with limited oral and/or written competence in English to handle most everyday survival, social, family, and job-related situations independently, using oral and written English. Stage 3 materials, presented here, are intended for learners at student performance levels 5 and 6 (of 6 levels). The 12 instructional units cover these topics: continuing education; community services and resources; personal financial management; dealing with machines; travel in America; grammatical construction; problems on the job; environmental concerns; real costs of owning a car; the legal system; and buying a house. Lists of common abbreviations/symbols and a U.S. map are included. Components of these materials include the student workbook, an audiotape (not included here), teacher's edition of the workbook, and teachers' resource file, which contains reproducible masters for a wide variety of complementary activities, consisting of exercises, problem-solving activities, simulations, and games relevant to the individual unit topics, and generic games and game boards. The materials use authentic language, adult contexts relevant to the lives of learners, their families, and friends, and visual stimuli when appropriate, and emphasize paired and group work.
