On July 17, 2008 the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) awarded a contract to the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to assist OVAE in conducting a descriptive study of instructional and programmatic practices that support the transition of English language learners (TELL) from English as a second language (ESL) programs to adult basic education (ABE) or adult secondary education (ASE) programs. A key component of the study, known as the TELL project, is a review of literature and critical annotated bibliography to provide an overview and critique of the research related to TELL. The review of literature focused on instructional practices and programs related to TELL, including teaching and learning processes, strategies to improve academic language learning, and instructional and programmatic strategies that support ELLs' transition to ABE and ASE programs. Appended to this bibliography are: (A) Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria; (B) Table of Acronyms; (C) List of Search Terms; (D) Databases and Websites; (E) International Models; (F) Learning Processes; (G) Multi-contextual Strategies, Curricula, and Models; (H) Professional Development and Teacher Training; (I) Programmatic and Administrative Structures; (J) Skills for Academic Success; (K) State and Local Policy; and (L) Student Characteristics. (Contains 3 exhibits and 145 notes.)
