Neighbor to Neighbor: An English as a Second Language Curriculum for Volunteers.
Bailey, Elizabeth M.; Schaffer, Deborah L.
This curriculum is divided into eight modules: personal identification (name, native country, family, address, and telephone number); time and calendar (time, daily routine, days, and months); weather and seasons; shopping (money and price of clothes); location and direction; health (body parts, problems, and emergencies); housing (rooms/furnishings and problems); and employment (job titles and work experience). Each module is divided into units with communication objectives the students are to achieve. Each module follows the same format: module page; unit cover page; unit lesson plan (presentation, practice, and expansion); and handouts. Each module has visuals which serve as graphic representations of the language being taught. Cue cards and handouts are included. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education.) (SM)
