ESL Resource Package for Alberta Communities

Abstract: 
This resource package provides a basic introduction to teaching English as a second language for those instructors in community ESL programs who may not have training and background in TESL. It includes brief introductions to TESL and adult learning principles, cultural diversity, learning styles, the Canadian Language Benchmarks, lesson planning, ESL literacy, and selecting resources. The core of the resource is a curriculum which sequences CLB competencies, grammar, literacy (reading, writing, numeracy), themes, activities and resources through 8 levels (CLB 1-8). Also included in the resource are descriptions of common ESL instructional activities as well as some assessment resources.
