Growing Up Different (Adult Student ESL Journals).
Fraser, Jane, Ed.
Participants in an adult education grade 11 English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) writing class, all immigrants to Canada with varying cultural backgrounds, wrote journal entries in response to the theme "growing up different." The project involved individual writing, word processing, peer editing, computer graphics, audiotape recording of completed essays, and creation of a bound book. A description of the project, drawing on recent research in ESL instruction, is presented and the ten resulting essays are included. The stories, which comprise over half of the document, reflect widely varying background experiences, and some similarities in experiences after immigrating. Contains 15 references.
