Teaching English in a multi-cultural classroom with ESL (English as a second language) exercises : an honors thesis [(HONRS 499)]
This is a collection of writing exercises to be used in a resource file for a high school English class. The ideas for the exercises, taken from Edward Allen and Rebecca Valette's Classroom Techniques: Foreign Languages and English as a Second Language, were originally designed for students learning another language. There are two reasons for using this approach. The first reason is because native Americans often feel like standard written English is a foreign language. The second is because I want to teach English to the students by using their culture. These exercises allow cultural input. Hopefully, these exercises, which are broken down into seven specific categories, will help the students as they write.
