Abstract:

This lesson plan guide is designed to be used by English-as-a-Second-Language (esl) teachers to help their learners deal with new welfare legislation--Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)--and to prepare them for the world of work. Learners at the high beginner to low intermediate level and above will benefit from this instruction. All learners will not be tanf recipients, but the lessons are general and can help anyone build important language skills. Each lesson is expected to take several days or weeks to complete. Lessons can be used in any order and are self-contained. Each lesson contains a vocabulary list; spelling bees, bingo, jeopardy, and role playing scenarios are encouraged as a means of helping learners acquire and use the words and build their vocabularies. Learners should also keep portfolios of work as they serve as an excellent tool for demonstrating progress and organizing learning materials. It is hoped that these interdisciplinary, multicultural, interactive lesson plans will help both new and experienced teachers guide their learners through some of the most difficult tasks that they will ever face--dealing with a welfare system and finding employment in a new country with limited English skills. Part one of the book explains the tanf system in great detail. Part two teaches job readiness strategies. Appendices are not included.
