I will be teaching English in Central America and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations as to where I can find a year-long comprehensive K-6 or K-12 curriculum and/or a curricular framework, preferably non-content-based but not compulsory, geared towards elementary ESL/EFL.
Challenges I'll be facing in designing this curriculum:
-In-country supplies will be limited
-I won't have a lot of money or travel space to invest in materials
-Little, and I mean little, has been accomplished/established in the program, curricularly, to date
-Students will be from low-income, "troubled" families
-Estimated average entry-level proficiency level of students: Novice Low (ACTFL rating scale)
I have experience with L2/FL curriculum design, but have not embarked on such a large-scale project before, and certainly not for this age group. Any suggestions, advice, referrals, etc. will be of great help.
Thanks so much!
