Certificates in English Language Literacies (CELL). Adult Education in the Community.
Achren, Lynda; Bamforth, Jill; McKenna, Angela
This curriculum guide for Certificates in English Language Literacies (CELL) advocates "apprenticed" learning and assessment. At no stage is the learner expected to work alone, though it is expected and desired that learners eventually consolidate more skills and become more independent. This curriculum is designed so that the learner will always have considerable scaffolding from the teacher or other learners. The following issues are considered important and addressed in this curriculum: expression of student needs, cultural considerations, interlanguage, language varieties, the "covert curriculum," classroom relationships, teaching styles ("tell or teach"), and critical analysis of lower level learners. The guide is divided into three sections: "General Information"; "Course Overview"; and "Module Details." Learning modules for three certificate programs are:21046VIC Certificate in English Language Literacies (Foundation); 21047 VIC Certificate I in English Language Literacies; and 21048VIC Certificate II in English Language Literacies. All three curriculum documents have been accredited under the authority of the adult Community and Further Education Board of Victoria, Australia for the period of July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2004. There are also four appendices: "Sample Course Outline for Curriculum Domains"; "Record of Observation Sheet"; "Course Planning Sheets"; and "Sample Certificate/Statement."
