ESL for Beginners Vol. 3 SNEAK PEEK


 

 

1. ESL for BEGINNERS- CULTURE EXPLORERS: Sessions Guide with Activities Volume One

 This guide will lead the teacher or counselor to help English language learners understand and/or adapt to the English-speaking culture.  What exactly is English-speaking culture, you ask?  Well, most English-speaking countries today have roots in former Latin and Germanic cultures since the English language is a Latin-influenced Germanic language.  This history leads to many present day similarities in each English-speaking culture around the world.   ESL for Beginners Culture Explorers aims to expose the student to the commonalities that exist in English-speaking cultures, thus making the transition to or understanding of the English culture smoother.  The guide will focus on the values, holidays, and traditions of various English-speaking countries and it is a perfect curriculum to support an English Club or to just to give your ESL/EFL students a fun cultural experience!   These sessions work well as whole class activities, during some extra time in an English-speaking language program.  In addition, the sessions in this guide can be implemented as a counseling/guidance group.  This guide is appropriate for both bilingual/ESL and counseling environments, with students ages 8 to adult.  This product is Volume One of the series and includes activities for six sessions, approximately an hour each to be facilitated once per week.

  • Sessions Guide with Six One Hour Sessions (Volume One)
  • Recommendations Guide for Helping Students Understand and/or Transition to the English-speaking Culture and for Facilitating Group Sessions

8.  BE COOL! Anger Management Group Sessions Guide with Activities

After many years of trying one anger counseling guide after another, with little consistent success for the students, I finally decided to create my own based on the brief counseling model.  With heavy emphasis on students sharing successes of their own self-chosen goals and lots of processed role plays, this guide gets results.  This 6 session guide comes with templates to gather/present data on student success—with this guide, my group results skyrocketed to 50% or more of group members decreasing their discipline referrals at school.  This chronological guide has easy-to-follow sessions that actually can be completed in 1 hour per week.  It is appropriate for use in school counseling programs and in residential, clinical, or juvenile environments.
