Alegre, Mary Kay; Mansoor, Inaam; Moss, Donna; Phillips, Vanessa
This document consists of three parts to help teachers and students to integrate technology into the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classroom--the facilitator's guide, participant's materials, and the participant's reference materials. The facilitator's guide is divided into three parts. Part one is a presentation guide providing step-by-step, activity-by-activity handouts that assist the teacher with program management, materials management (overheads, participant handouts, equipment, and back-up plan ideas) as well as talking points. Part two provides master copies of all overheads. Part three provides back-up presentation materials. The participant's materials are designed to help participants effectively use technology such as audiovisual materials, computer software, and the Internet in the classroom. The bulk of these materials consists of overhead projector forms, handouts for students and workshop participants, and feedback inquiry forms. The participant's reference materials include the following:"Some Thoughts about Web Quests"; "Building Blocks of a Web Quest"; "ESL Internet Bookmarks"; "Compass Points: Refugees and the Internet"; "EFF Content Standards for Adult Literacy and Lifelong Learning"; "Role Maps for EFF: Parent/Family, Citizen/Community, Worker"; "Five ESL Web Sites from the Arlington Education and Employment Program"; and "Web Quest Dos and Don'ts." Several Web links are provided, in some cases where forms can be downloaded or printed right from the Internet. (KFT)
