ESL Curriculum?

Hello colleagues, I'm very interested in how ESL programs have designed their curriculum. How do you know what to teach? What is guiding your curricular decisions? Is an ESL textbook your main guide? Do standards play an essential role in your curriculum? if so, how do you integrate standards?

This is a big question, and I'm hoping we can have a robust discussion here on LINCS about what programs and teachers look to to guide the curriculum we are using.

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller

Well, I am and I hope you are. I hope when you "weigh in" that you will let us know what those challenges are for you.
