Always motivated, though frequently frustrated, these adult learners present school districts with unique challenges and exciting opportunities. Do your adult ESL programs measure up? Included: Online activities for review, reinforcement, practice, or drill According to figures compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau , almost 80 percent of the 26.4 million immigrants living in the United States are older than 18. The National Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education (NCLE) reports that in 1998, 2 million adults and out-of-school youths enrolled in U.S. Department of Education-funded ESL programs. The sheer numbers of those adult ESL students demonstrate that English-language programs cannot stop at the doors of the high school but must be included in district-run continuing education programs. Is your district able to meet the challenges these students present?

For that reason, class sizes are kept at an average of 14 and a maximum of 20 students. Given these low student-teacher ratios, a trained, experienced teacher is the person best able to address a student's specific learning challenges. Thus, TAISM is an inclusive school, with all students receiving services in a mainstream classroom. This approach is in line with the current best practices in United States schools. Every student can learn if given appropriate opportunities. Teachers in TAISM classrooms differentiate instruction, adapting and modifying their lessons to meet the needs of their students. TAISM also coordinates with specialists in the community to work in partnership - teacher, specialist, parents and students - to help all children succeed.

Extractions: 3:30-4:15 and by appointment http://www.wsu.edu/~egbert/333/ Rationale and Purpose In all probability, almost every classroom teacher at some point in his or her career will be responsible for the education of at least one student who does not speak English, who is learning English, or who speaks English as a second language. With the current political trend to abolish bilingual education and establish English-only programs that will mainstream non-English speaking students as quickly as possible (California, Arizona, Utah, etc.), the role of the classroom teacher in educating linguistically and culturally diverse students will be critical to their success. The purpose of this course is to provide ESL endorsement seekers with research-based practical knowledge that they will be able to apply in a variety of instructional contexts to insure the success of minority students from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Students will develop an understanding of basic concepts of second language processing in a variety of language learning contexts. They will develop skills that will enable them to teach students when they do not speak their students' language(s) yet are responsible for making sure those students learn and meet the state standards for their grade. Course Specific Objectives Students will participate in activities that will enable them to do the following: discuss pedagogical and organizational features of different program models serving linguistically diverse students;

Extractions: ERIC Documents Several factors influence the identification of English language learners with special needs. Limited prior schooling, lack of proficiency in English, native language background, cultural expectations, and personal or family concerns can all influence a learnerçs academic progress. It can be difficult to distinguish between a learning disability and learning problems caused by a variety of other factors. English language learners whose difficulties in school stem from these factors may be misidentified as having a learning disability. In other cases, English language learners who have a learning disability may not be properly identified on the assumption that their learning problems stem from linguistic and cultural differences. To further complicate matters, special needs may not have been identified in the learner's native language but may become evident as the student is learning English. Traditional identification instruments designed for English speakers may not be valid with English language learners. Identification of English language learners with special needs should include consideration of the following factors:

Extractions: Home > Educational Support Educational Support Student Government Community Services Other Facilities New students arrive at Lincoln throughout the academic year, with different cultural, educational and linguistic backgrounds, and with varying levels of proficiency in English. Fortunately for them, Lincoln has a vigorous and highly regarded ESL Department to cater for the widely varying needs both of new ESL students and of those already here. The overall goal of the programme is to help students function successfully in school life, both socially and educationally, as quickly as possible. The means to this end is a supported immersion programme, whereby ESL students are placed in their mainstream class but withdrawn for part of the day for specialist instruction from the elementary or secondary ESL teacher. Lessons are tailored to individual needs and take place in small groups of 1 to 4 students, in a relaxed, supportive and academically challenging environment that encourages risk-taking and promotes rapid, effective learning. The number of lessons and time in the programme depend on the student's progress as determined jointly by ESL and mainstream teachers, in consultation with the Lincoln Principals.

Extractions: This page is designed for teachers who have ESL students in their classes and would like to know more about them and how to accommodate their special needs. First of all, the content teacher needs to understand that the ESL student community has the same amount of diversity that the general student body has; a variation in general intelligence, in subject-area familiarity, in maturity level, in motivation, and in economic background is to be expected throughout any given cultural group. When you have a concern about an ESL student, therefore, English language level is only one factor among many which influences the student's classroom performance. Nevertheless, some performance factors that are unique to ESL students in general are caused by cultural issues. Textbooks and teaching techniques used in the home country may be very different from the ones we use here. Many textbooks have no illustrations, charts, graphs, glossaries, or homework exercises. Teaching techniques are often deductive rather than inductive. Students may be encouraged to memorize information. Often teachers, not students, do laboratory experiments in science classes. Sometimes students are not used to working in groups; sometimes students have only worked in same-sex groups. When a particular ESL student seems very disoriented in your class, consult with the ESL teacher for available background information. Allow for a period of adjustment.

EMAIL this page to a friend With Teaching Grammar in Context , thousands of teachers discovered why students achieve better results when they learn grammar during the process of writing. In Lessons to Share , Connie Weaver's promised sequel, she focuses on the practical, offering valuable "lessons" from educators at all levels. The first section of the book addresses the learning and teaching of grammar, setting the stage for subsequent sections. The purpose behind the article on how language is learned is to help readers understand that babies and preschoolers acquire the grammar of their language without direct instruction and that language continues to develop indirectly during children's school years. Connie's article on teaching grammar in the context of writing articulates other aspects of the rationale that underlies this book: teaching grammar in the context of its use.
