Burkart, Grace Stovall; Sheppard, Ken
The 15 guides included in this training packet were compiled from data gathered during a 3-year study of content-English-as-a-Second-Language (content-ESL) programs across the United States. These 15 guides are intended as stepping stones and idea-generators and include information on curriculum development, material selection and adaptation, and lesson planning. Guidance is also offered on choosing techniques, learning cooperatively, and teaching thematically. Sample surveys, checklists, assessment protocols, and student profiles are included along with program profiles and additional resources. The guides include: (1) "When Is a Content-ESL Program a Good Idea?"; (2) "What Is Sheltered Content Instruction?"; (3) "Where Can You Go for Additional Help?"; (4) "What Should You Read if You Want To Know More about this Approach?"; (5) "What Does a Content-ESL Program Look Like?"; (6) "How Do You Decide Who Should Be in Content-ESL"; (7) "How Will Your Curriculum Change?"; (8) "How Are You Going To Access These Students?"; (9) "How Can You Identify Good Content-ESL Material"; (10) "How Can You Adapt the Material You're Using Now?"; (11) "What Are You Going To Do if You Can't Speak the Students' Language?"; (12) "What Can You Do When You Have a Linguistically Diverse Group in One Classroom?"; (13) "How Can You Make Your Program Fit Your School's and District's Goals?"; and (14 and 15) "How Do You Write a Lesson Plan for Students with Limited English Proficiency?" Contains a substantial reference list. (NAV)
