A Guide to the Standard Course of Study for Limited English Proficient Students, Grades K-5.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide is designed to help both English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and regular classroom teachers improve instruction for limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in the elementary grades in the areas of math, science, social studies, and English language arts. This K-5 guide provides models for teachers who need to modify instruction for LEP students in their classrooms, while ensuring that all instruction is aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. It addresses two competencies goals at each grade level for each of the four subject areas, and at least one content task is provided to clarify the teacher's understanding of the particular content objective. The Language Alert" section provides information regarding the vocabulary, language structures, and functions, while "Notes" highlights differences in cultural perspectives that may affect learning and provides other suggestions for classroom teachers. A "Language Strategies/Assessment" section is arranged according to the students' English language proficiency levels--novice, intermediate, and advanced. Most of the guide is in a chart format to facilitate quick teacher reference and use. A glossary and a bibliography are appended. (KFT)
