Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta.
The resource guide is designed for administrators, teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL), counselors, grade-level teachers, content-area teachers, and other school personnel who work with or make decisions regarding ESL students. Sections synthesize information on and suggest techniques for a variety of topics related to ESL. A section on student rights under federal law addresses legal responsibilities regarding language-minority students and includes relevant federal laws, litigation summaries, and legal interpretations. Another section offers suggestions for addressing first-day issues of enrollment, placement, and scheduling. A third section outlines 13 specific strategies for both ESL and grade-level teachers working with this population, and another offers specific approaches to cultural issues affecting teachers and students in a diverse classroom. Georgia Department of Education policy regarding ESL students and the state-funded program is also detailed, including procedures and criteria for entry-exit, identification and placement, class size, and teacher certification. The final section lists resource organizations, texts and materials, and contacts useful in supporting ESL students and programming. (MSE)
