Hands-On English, v11 n1-6 2001-2002
These six issues of the periodical offer teachers and tutors practical ideas for teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to adults. The publications include such teaching activities as multilevel crossword puzzles, multilevel dictation, a grammar grab-bag, role play games, an ESL board game, and a newspaper search activity. They also offer queries and comments from the readers as well as hints and tips in such areas as teaching intonation, using puzzles, playing guessing games, and using pictures. Tips from the field focus on planning lessons, creating student reports on endangered species, dealing with bank accounts, and achieving personal goals via the Olympic spirit. Two issues include mini-grant reports that describe a student-made home safety exhibit and a student-written tour guidebook of London, Kentucky.
