The research agenda for English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teaching and learning summarizes issues identified for further study by ESL professionals over the period of 1996-1998. The document is designed to provide funding agencies with clear priorities for research suggested by leaders in the field, provide researchers with support for proposing specific projects, and provide a focus for discussion about improvement of ESL programs. Recommendations are made for research and development in the areas of: adult ESL learners; program design, instructional content, and practices; teacher preparation and staff development; assessment and outcomes; policy; and priority issues. In each area but the last, five to ten specific research questions are presented. Contains 32 references. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
