Teachers‛ Notes

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. More Easy Read and d Write W i is i the h third book in the Easyy English g Series Serie for students learning g English as a Second Language as well as Aboriginal students learning English as a Second Dialect, that is, students who are coming into the school system having little or no experience of English.

ESL/ESD learners need an explicit, methodical and planned language program that can be integrated into their class work in all key learning areas. It is important for the teacher to establish a supportive classroom environment where the student’s first language and culture are valued. This will nurture the student’s selfesteem and encourage him or her to gain confidence in the early stages of learning a new language. Use of cooperative learning strategies and peer tutoring will help the student build social friendships which are an integral part of developing language skills. It is important for the teacher to be aware that using short, positive sentences is best for the learner. The teacher must provide time for the student to process statements

and and always check d instructions i for the student’s u understanding. und

The teacher’s gestures and facial expressions plus visual clues (photos, pictures, objects, etc) will help the student make meaning. Regular and positive feedback from the teacher will consolidate the student’s sense of achievement and encourage self confidence. More Easy Read and Write (Book 3) builds on the thematic vocabulary introduced in Easy Words (Book 1) and the stories in Easy Read and Write (Book 2). Each double page features a story and activities based on the story to provide easy reference for the student and to build the student’s confidence and skills. Other books in the series focus on reading, writing, punctuation and grammar, text types and the skills of editing and proofreading.
