Lopez-Valadez, Jeanne; Bruns, Cristy
This bibliography lists the library holdings of the Illinois Bilingual Vocational Education Project that pertain to vocational English as a Second Language (VESL), career, and vocational education for the limited-English-proficient (LEP) population. The project is a statewide technical assistance and staff development center designed to help improve vocational education for LEP youth and adults. The bibliography is in three parts. The first, "Instructional Materials," lists student texts and curriculum guides for teaching career awareness, pre-employment skills, occupational skills, and English as a Second Language (ESL). Included here are a section on materials that are written in simplified English or a non-English language, or rely heavily on illustrations, and a section on resources to teach general employment and job-specific language skills. The second part, "Professional References," cites readings on program models, teaching strategies, counseling, and linguistic minorities and includes research studies and inservice teaching materials. The third part, "Sources of Information," contains bibliographies of additional resources and a list of information clearinghouses. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
