Description

Reviews

This resource brings together information about policy, second language acquisition theory and research, methods and materials for teaching adult English language learners, program design, and cross-cultural issues that effect learning in adult ESL classrooms.  It also discusses the context within which adult ESOL instructors work and in which adult ESOL programs function.  The framework for this discussion of context draws from the developing framework of standards for teachers of adult learners under consideration by TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Inc.).

This book is designed for faculty and students in adult education graduate programs and other TESOL preparation programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels that target adult learners.  Other audiences are adult ESL program directors and policy makers as well as educators working in elementary and high school, many of whom are connected to populations of adult learners through the parents of the children they serve.

"The book offers the reader an excellent overview of the ESL field.  Drawing on his 35 years of experience, Orem clearly describes the foundational aspects of the field.  He examines the diversity of teaching methods in ESL programs, curriculum design, and theory in a practical and useful fashion.  His book is a valuable resource for faculty, students, administrators, and educators at all levels." -- Eugene Holton, Ph.D., Exploring Adult Literacy

"…a substantive and strongly recommended addition to professional and academic library Adult Education and ESL reference and resource collections."--The Midwest Book Review, April 2006

"…provides students in undergraduate and graduate TESL preparation programs and adult ESL program teachers and administrators with a concise and straightforward examination of teaching methods, program design, cross-cultural considerations, and materials that are essential to the field of ESL teaching." -- William Hodges, University of Guelph, Canadian Journal of Continuing University Education

"Interspersed in all the chapters are tables, figures, and charts.  I found these to be the highlight of the book, as they are applicable to all types of adult English education.  Here, Orem's book becomes an important resource for teachers and administrators in a relatively tidy package." -- Mark Hamilton, Adult Learning
