I suggest you start by downloading the Practitioner Toolkit: Working
with Adult English Language Learners. It is a very valuable resource
for teachers who are new to ESL. In Part II Activity Packets you'll
find very useful information on student orientation, needs assessment,
lesson planning, and classroom activities for communication and reading.
Part IV has top notch articles on adult ESL fundamentals - literacy
learners, assessment, learning disabilities, transition to
post-secondary, and preparation for citizenship.

You'll find the toolkit on several websites. I prefer the CAELA website
<http://www.cal.org/caela/tools/instructional/prac_toolkit.html> l

Another good resource is the ESOL Starter Kit from the Virginia Adult
Learning Resource Center. Section C provides basics for teaching
adults, Section D focuses on Planning Lessons and Section F has a
Curriculum Overview. You can download this kit at
http://www.valrc.org/esol/ Scroll down to "Publications"

Best regards.
