Integrated Teaching Training Modules
This resource helps practitioners better understand career pathways programs and expand practioners’ professional knowledge.
This guidebook consists of nine modules, each focusing on a different aspect of curriculum integration, to be implemented in a content teacher / ESL teacher partnership. The modules are designed to be completed one per week in sequence, throughout the course of a ten-week teaching session. If time allows, it is preferable to begin the modules a week or two before the teaching term begins.
Each module contains three parts: an informational section which the instructors can read independently; discussion springboards and a plan of implementation in which the instructors prepare to activate the information in the classroom; and a reflection summary to be completed after implementation, to contemplate the results in writing. Modules include:
Module 1: Collaboration
Module 2: Curriculum Selection and Materials
Module 3: Teaching Styles
Module 4: A Brief Overview of ESL Instruction
Module 5: The Pre-Academic Student
Module 6: Cultural Differences in the Classroom
Module 7: Moving Students from Dependence to Independence
Module 8: Student Learning Styles
Module 9: Reflection and Capturing
Instructors who collaborate using these materials will be able to create learning experiences that encompass both content area and ESL instruction.
