This module, which may be used as the basis for a workshop or as a special topic unit in adult basic education or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses, discusses children's changing roles. It is designed to help parents to support their children's roles--becoming bicultural, being learners, and creating oneself. The module contains the following: an overview of the topic; the specific skills that the module emphasizes; and teaching points, learning activities, resources, and commercial textbooks. A sample lesson plan begins with a cover sheet with objectives (learners and context, room setup, to bring, to do ahead, media used, and steps). The lesson plan indicates time required, materials required, and teacher and student activities. Other contents include overhead transparency masters, handouts, presurvey, and postassessment. The objectives for this module are as follows: discuss how to support children's learning; identify learning styles; visualize the home as a learning center and describe things to do; and list activities to enhance the children's development.
