Crossler-Laird, Jannie; O'Reilly, Ed; Roelofsae, Gary; Terpin, Mark
The curriculum is designed for teachers of limited-English-proficient auto parts sales personnel, and consists of seven instructional modules focusing on automotive vocabulary and job-related communication skills. The curriculum begins with an extensive automotive vocabulary list. Outlines of the instructional modules follow, each containing information on the module's time and materials requirements, general objectives, and classroom exercises. Each module has one or more parts, consisting of a warm-up, presentation content and teacher guide, notes on practice drills, and in some cases, discussion of the process to be followed or application to be made of the information presented. Module topics include: introduction to college-level classes; textbook reading; time management; classroom language; listening and notetaking; guiding the conversation; and vocabulary building. Subsequent materials include a course outline, notes on classroom communication and specific instructional techniques, forms for teacher use in the classroom, and notes on aspects of grammar (contractions, reduction), pronunciation, and semantics found in daily conversation. Contains six references. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
