It is designed to help teachers reach across cultures and connect with individual English-as-a-Second-or-Other-Language students to better prepare them to become effective teachers. The guidebook begins with a detailed explanation of ESOL terms in "National Reporting System Levels for Adult ESOL Programs" and then provides practical advice and resource materials in chapters titled "Competencies,""English language/Civics Competencies," and "Workplace Competencies." Most of the remainder of the book is devoted to providing a myriad of detailed student learning plans geared specifically and individually to Learning Levels 1-6 and to multilevel learner groupings. Three concluding chapters include "Materials and Resources,""Student Portfolios," and "Information for New ESOL Teachers." (Contains 14 resources.)
