Nine Complementary Principles To Retain Adults In An Esol/Literacy Program, Edmund T. Hamann Apr 1997

Nine Complementary Principles To Retain Adults In An Esol/Literacy Program, Edmund T. Hamann

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

The following list of principles is my attempt to share general recommendations to teachers of ESOL and/or limited literacy adults based on my specific practice running a bilingual family literacy program and confirmed by my more recent experience as a volunteer bilingual literacy teacher at the AsociaciĆ³n Latinoamericana (in Atlanta). Though I believe in bilingual classroom environments, I think the principles identified here are also pertinent to monolingual ESL environments.
