Product Description

The Picture This! A Beginning ESL Teacher's Resource Book is designed to introduce non-English speakers living in the United States to the vocabulary commonly encountered in this country. Purchasers of this book are entitled to reproduce all activities as many times as they like, thus making it a one-time investment for years' worth of teaching.

The Picture This! A Beginning ESL Teacher's Resource Book is a visual resource book intended for use in a beginning-level ESL classroom. It provides a strong curricular framework for teachers of junior high, high school, and adult English Language Learners. The idea of using pictures to assist in learning a language other than English comes from the old cliché: "A picture is worth a thousand words." Rather than translating a word verbally -- a practice which risks a lack of comprehension and information overload in early language learners -- instructors can use pictures to build a strong foundational vocabulary. Because it contains 30 different vocabulary units, placed in an optimal developmental order, Picture This! relieves the stress of teachers by helping them know what they will be teaching each week of the year. In addition, the uniformity, predictability, and appropriate reading level of the materials promote great success in beginning English learners who are often confused by the incomprehensible materials used in content classes.

The Picture This! A Beginning ESL Teacher's Resource Book contains 30 different language-building units, each featuring a reproducible 10-25 minute activity for every day of the week: a vocabulary word list, vocabulary pictures (32 new words per unit), two quizzes, a crossword puzzle, a word search puzzle, oral dictation sentences and test, and a helpful spelling test form.

This new edition of Picture This! A Beginning ESL Teacher's Resource Book also features a BONUS collection of 26 A-Z activities that supplement the vocabulary units and make learning new words fun! These creative "plug-ins" help extend the vocabulary development beyond the mere memorization of words.
