Successful Instruction for Literacy-Level Adults. CARLA Working Paper.
Vinogradov, Patsy
This report explores a range of issues related to the successful instruction of literacy-level English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) adults. The paper describes types of programs as well as factors that affect this population. Through a series of teacher interviews, the unique characteristics of these learners as well as suggested curricula are detailed. Appendices include suggested student materials and a reading list. The report is divided into six sections: introduction, types of programs, literature review (including native language literacy, age, trauma, family demands, cultural and individual beliefs, sociopolitical concerns), teacher interviews, curriculum (goals of a literacy-level course, sequence, presentation [including techniques and sample lessons], and assessment), and teacher training workshop materials. (Contains 50 references.) (KFT)
