Module 1 Part 1 Teacher's Guide: ESL CURRICULUM FOR BEGINNERS Second Edition ESL Curriculum is a publication of Learning English with Laughter's Teen-Adult Series. There are four Modules in this series. This Teacher's Guide is part of a series of the three books, Student Reader, Workbook and Teacher's Guide that comprise Module 1 Part 1. This Teacher's Guide has 80 pages that correspond to the 20 lessons. It completes and is a vital part of this first English second language Module, Module 1 Part1. Many of the exercises and activities will be incomplete if bought without the series - Student Reader, Workbook and Teacher's Guide. The availability of this series of Modules, each in two Parts, allows schools, colleges and universities to provide books for half of each Module at a time. This allows flexibility in administering the program. This Teacher's Guide provides Oral Questions for every lesson. During a number of years of teaching English Second Language students in the Czech Republic we asked the students to complete surveys that listed the many types of activities that they had participated in. Our students consistently rated this oral questions activity as the most helpful on a scale of 1 to 10. Teachers will find: - Learning English with Laughter philosophy - Oral questions for every lesson - Answers to all questions from the Student Reader and Teacher's Guide - Notes to teachers that provide suggestions or background information - Competitive whole class Team Games - Picture Bingo with enrichment callouts included - Games that reinforce the use of difficult verbs such as to do - Information charts to complete - Partner activity to reinforce un plurals - Finding and recording personal information provided on a chart - Role-playing greetings using role-cards. - Questioning activity to find a specific person (role-cards) - Unit tests after every fourth lesson - Test answers - Marking instructions - Mid-term test after Lesson 20 The activities listed above spark a lot of laughter that creates a relaxed learning atmosphere. This Teacher's Guide is an essential part of Module 1 Part 1. The program provided in the Student Reader and the Workbook cant be successfully presented without the use of this Guide. As it is for teacher use only the provision of one copy per teacher is sufficient. All Guide activities can be photocopied as needed. The online version is presently being used in more than 70 countries of the world.
Daisy Stocker B.Ed., M.Ed. taught in the British and Canadian school systems in different capacities over many years. George Stocker D.D.S. practiced Dentistry and taught in hospitals, colleges and universities. In 1990 they left their Canadian careers and traveled to Czechoslovakia to teach and assist in establishing the first private language school in the country. During the following years the Stockers developed this series of textbooks. Frequent surveys were given to the students to assess the many components of their lessons. The results of the surveys were discussed with the students and only the most helpful content was retained. This grassroots feedback obtained from our students has been positively confirmed by students and teachers in more than 70 countries around the world. Since leaving the Czech Republic the Stockers have taught in Budapest, Hong Kong and Northern India. They make their home in Victoria, Canada.
